Quake Wars Pushed Back to 2007 Quake Wars Pushed Back to 2007

Fans of the Quake saga will be disappointed to find out that Splash Damage, the game's developers have made it clear that the game will not be released in 2006.

Initially expected in late 2006, the game's development has been delayed in order to allow for optimization of the multiplayer experience. The statement appearing in the Gamespy developer diary, from Splash Damage owner and lead game designer, Paul 'Locki' Wedgwood, claims: Following E3, Splash Damage and id spent weeks reviewing the status of Enemy Territory. 2006 has been a great year for us, with incredible response from the press and the community. It's also been a challenging year, as the team here has given extraordinary effort towards completing the game this year. Unfortunately, sometimes effort isn't all you need -- sometimes you just need more time. To ensure the quality we want, we've decided to push the release out of 2006 to allow for extended testing, feedback and game balancing.

The new release date has not been disclosed but considering Splash Damage claim to be entering the beta stage of development we believe it will be early 2007, possibly spring. Stay with MegaGames for more Enemy Territory: Quake Wars news.
