Not going to say I told you so

War delayI found a few moments to write this evening while browsing the internets to quench my addiction’s thirst when I came upon this little gem of information. In EA’s Earning’s Call they announced that Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning was being pushed back to Q2 2008. Well who didn’t see that one coming? Despite the constant reassurance that “we would see a Q1 2008 release” Mr. Jacobs finally relinquished his strangle hold on that Q1.

Q2 is the new goal and I could not possibly be any happier. Ohhh we’ll surely hear from the sniveling naysayers about how ominous this announcement is but I honestly choose to ignore them. We’re looking at quality here people – this isn’t something you push out the door. I’m elated that EA is not pushing WAR out the door because then we would never hear the end of it.

The goodness of this news is compounded upon by the relief of knowing I will get to enjoy games like Pirates of the Burning Sea and EQ2 that much longer. For a while there I was beginning to worry that I might have to double up the subscriptions there in order to play both. Luckily for all of us PotBS will get its due chance to succeed and try its hand at changing the genre around a bit.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to view the October Newsletter for WAR yet then please do. I’ll provide my feedback on it either later tonight or tomorrow.
