Bad news for fans of Blizzard Entertainment's third-person console action game - the game has been delayed. Now you'll have to wait until sometime in early 2004. Here's the official statement:
In order to meet our goals and deliver the outstanding gameplay experience our customers have come to expect from Blizzard products, we have decided to extend our StarCraft: Ghost development schedule through the end of 2003. That said, the Ghost development team remains hard at work, and we look forward to bringing you an outstanding tactical-action console game in 2004.

We firmly believe that this additional development time will prove invaluable, ensuring that the game will truly expand on the legendary gameplay experience found in the previous StarCraft titles. As with all Blizzard products, our goal is to make StarCraft: Ghost the best it can be, and we will not release the game until it's ready.

Announcements regarding further details and specifics on the release of the game will be available in the near future. We encourage you to check our official Web site for updates, and as always, we're grateful for your interest and enthusiasm.

-Blizzard Entertainment

I seen this coming and it will not be the last time it gets delayed.

It's a Blizzard game, there's going to be 3 or more delays before it's out.

Yeah, I don't even know why Blizzard bothers to give release dates. I'd even be skeptical if it'll make it's projected 2004 release date now. But the upside is, like every other Blizzard game, when it comes out it will be finished with nothing overlooked. And it will kick ass.

Maybe they should just give a date like some time 2004.

It'll probably take them even longer since this is their first game in this genre. Honestly delays don't matter to me much with this game, as it will be the one blizzard game I don't own.

Oh, just to let everyone know, if you don't like Metal Gear Solid gameplay, chances are you won't like Ghost's gameplay.

Did you play it at E3?

If so tell us about it, how did it play?

What was good about, what was not so great about it?
