In a statement just issued to VG247, Tecmo Koei’s confirmed that Quantum Theory will still release this year, despite being delayed from its previous March date and slapped with an ominous “TBA” overnight.
“We can confirm that Quantum Theory has been moved to later in 2010,” a rep for the publisher said.
“We feel the game deserves optimum development time, and we aim to deliver the very best title we can.”
The sci-fi action title will be all the better for the slip, Koei added.
“We are still thoroughly committed to Quantum Theory and this short delay can only make for a stronger, more entertaining game,” the rep said.
The game was supposed to release on March 25 for both PS3 and 360.
The third-person shooter, which looks nothing like Gears of War, features “two-character combination actions” between leads Syd and Filena, a “shape-shifting battlefield” and a story set in a future where life is threatened by a black material called Erosion.
Hopefully we’ll have a firm date soon.
