3DS Ubi's Next 3DS titles pushed back to Q3

Probably every gamer reading, is well aware, just how many times release dates, change, 'slip' (or even worse) dissapear all together. That's the case for two Ubi Soft 3DS titles, we'd had our eye on, and both Driver Renegade and James Noir's Hollywood Crimes now appear to be reaching us much later in the year with a Q3 release penciled in

After years of undercover work on the Force, John Tanner wants to take matters of crime in his own hands, regardless of what the Law dictates. In a corrupt New York City run by criminal mobs, Tanner saves Senator Ballard's life. He needs help in leading a crusade against Crime. Tanner accepts to clean the city off the record, against the Senator's protection.

Tanner becomes a renegade and must take out five kingpins: a drug dealer, a human-organs trafficker, a pimp, an arms dealer and an over-greedy trader. Helped by his few friends, with no badge to hold him back, Tanner wages his war against crime with his weapon of choice: his car!

  • No No No Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Ubisoft has to make me more Rabbid games for me to put up with obtrocity.

    Trent, 30-11--0001 at 00:00
  • So does this extend to the US release of James Noir, which is June 7th? Or are Ubisoft marking quarters by the year and not the financial year, meaning Q3 would be July onwards?

    ganepark32, 30-11--0001 at 00:00
  • I always thought the Q's where based on years and not the financial year anyway? It always seems that way.

    Trent, 30-11--0001 at 00:00
  • Q3 is from July onwards but whenever this happens the title generally ends up being released in September/October.

    Andrew, 30-11--0001 at 00:00
  • Well Driver in general is September, so I assume the 3DS one will be out then.
