Release Date Shuffle: 'Ghost Recon Future Soldier,' 'Silent Hill HD Collection' Delayed

Two release dates slip as their respective publishers and developers attempt to get them out the door.

Well, it looks like the slow and methodical gameplay of survival horror and tactical shooters just got slow and methodical pushes further back into the spring by their respective companies. I wish trying something there with the phrasing, sue me.

First, if you preordered the Silent Hill HD Collection, it's likely that you received an e-mail informing you that the HD remakes of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 was getting nudged back to March 6th from January 24th. This is actually the latest date change for the game, which was originally targeted for last autumn.

Over on the Ubisoft side, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier has been moved from its original March date back to May 22nd in the U.S. and May 24th in Europe, both dates reflecting the PS3 and 360 releases—the PC release is targeted for "a later date." According to the PR mail sent out this morning by Ubisoft, although the game's campaign and multiplayer modes are feature complete, they're looking to use the remaining two months to add some extra polish to the futuristic tactical shooter. On the plus side, a multiplayer beta will be available in April for both consoles.
