PC Gamers have been eagerly awaiting the next game from Introversion Software, makers of DEFCOM, Uplink, and Darwinia, for five years now. Titled "Subversion," the studio's next project was a heist game, where players controlled a team of specialists in trying to rob a target. Well it looks like we won't be seeing that game anytime soon, as Introversion has announced the postponement of Subversion

However, there is some good news as well; Introversion is submitting a game to the Independent Games Festival for 2012, a wholly new title which we don't have any info about.

In the forum post, developer Chris Delay says that Subversion suffered from being tech-led and that "there was a gaping hole where you would see the 'core game.' We’d tried and tried to fill that hole with ambitious tech and experimental systems, but you couldn’t escape it."

I have to salute the guys at Introversion, as they've taken a risk with putting Subversion to one side but it looks like they've been able to re-focus and make a game they're really happy with. Maybe some other developers can learn from their example; a game led solely by technology might not be a good idea. *cough* Rage *cough*
