This weekend Ubisoft announced it was going to launch its newest installation in the [i]Tom Clancy?s Ghost Recon[/i] series, [i]Advanced Warfighter[/i], worldwide for the XBOX 360 in February 2006. Though this is a delay from the original release date, it will not impact Ubisoft?s revenue forecasts for the fiscal year.
At Amsterdam?s X05 event last week, Ubisoft allowed single and multi-player demonstrations of the new installment, and it was well received. Ubisoft expects it to quickly become a blockbuster title. ?In [i]Tom Clancy?s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter[/i], players will be able to truly immerse themselves as soldiers of the future,? said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing at Ubisoft North America. ?This game will continue the tradition of setting the bar for intense multiplayer action and cutting-edge technology. X05 attendees experienced the stunning results of the work Ubisoft?s award-winning studios have done in perfecting innovative multiplayer content and taking advantage of next-generation capabilities.?
