Blacklight: Tango Down, the Zombie Studios downloadable multi-player FPS, is facing a delay on the PlayStation 3. Developers Ignition Entertainment have mentioned on their Twitter feed the title won’t now be arriving until later than planned.
It was originally thought that it would be landing within a week or two of its XBLA début on July 7th, but after announcing the release of the PC version today they were asked about the PS3 version to which they replied mid to late August. The reason for the delay is down to quality or stability on the platform.
Some PS3 features are taking longer to get right than originally planned, and we don’t want to just ship it if it ain’t right.
Quite right too, the last thing we want is a repeat of the problems which dogged Battlefield 1943 and Fat Princess in their early days. According to the publishers, Blacklight: Tango Down is a fast-paced multiplayer shooter set in the dystopian future version of Eastern Europe. Developed with Unreal Engine 3, Blacklight: Tango Downs looks and plays like a full price AAA game but costs only $15. So let’s hope the problems are sorted sooner rather than later.
