Ghost Recon: Future Soldier only in Q1 2012

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier delayed until the first quarter of next year to avoid a “very crowded Christmas”.  So that’s Ubisoft’s version of a tactical retreat then…

In a post-earnings conference call, CEO Yves Guillemot said:

“It will be released in fiscal Q4 as we want first to have the best quality possible, as well as to avoid the very crowded Christmas landscape in the shooter genre.”

Hmm…too many shooters?  But Ghost Recon is not at all like a Call of Duty, Gears of War or Battlefield.
