Player Feedback Pushes R.U.S.E. To September

Proving that public beta tests aren't just for early free access, the team behind Ubisoft's deception-based strategy game R.U.S.E. are postponing the game's release until late September based on community feedback.

The news was delivered via the R.U.S.E. Facebook page this morning, complete with a laundry list of issues that the extra development time would be used to address, including menus, unit selection, AI and unit behaviour, lag and game balance. The game was originally slated for a June 4 release.

Following the massive feedback we got from the community during the Public Beta, we have decided to postpone the release of the final game to September 2010. While we understand how disappointing this news will be for many, rest assured that this is the best decision for R.U.S.E. and that this extra time will allow us to implement many of your suggestions and improve the multiplayer experience while polishing the overall game.

While this is disappointing news for fans, it should be taken as a sign that the developers have their best interests at heart. A game delay is never good, but a game delay to make sure fans are happy is better than most.

    "the developers have their best interests at heart."

    That little box in the bottom right corner seems to object.

      It seems you don't like DRM? o.O Most people who would play this game would not care for such miniscule things as Persistant Online DRM.

      Look at the amount of people who still bought Assassin's Creed 2? o.O

      Pretty sure most will still enjoy the game, no matter the DRM. It's really not the bad, unless your unlucky enough or not 'tech savvy' enough to have a stable internet connection.

    This will be an awesome game and all the better for their efforts to fix all the wee bugs.

    Good on them I pre-purchased as I am that mad for it!

    Thank you!
