No SOCOM 4 for you this year; Zipper Interactive, the game's developer, has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 title has slipped into 2011.
"While we're certainly aware that you've been looking forward to playing SOCOM 4 this year, we don't want to take any shortcuts," it said. "Instead, we want to deliver the best and most immersive SOCOM game we possibly can and we're going to use our extra time to do just that."
Based on my hands-on experience with the game earlier this year, it's already looking great, and works surprisingly well with PlayStation Move. Let's hope the extra time allows Zipper to make it even better.
