Quantic Dream has announced that their much-anticipated thriller Heavy Rain is being pushed back to 2010
. Co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere said that the game is on-time and on-budget
, but also that they don't want it to come out at the same time as many other high-profile games. "Most publishers today realize that it's not ideal to release a new IP or a new genre just before Christmas. It's a very crowded place to be, and certain games need more space to live their life. Everybody at working on the project, both at Quantic and Sony, believe this is the right time." Meanwhile, Take-Two announced that BioShock 2 would be delayed as well
, backing off from their October 30th EU release date and saying it will come out during the "first half of calendar 2010."
