Gaming sites report that, according to Sega, ETW will be delayed by about a month. This means the game will be released somewhere in March, though there is no new release date set yet.

Here's the news on WorthPlaying.

well, that sucks...
but on the bright side: one more month and it will be my birthday present!

Yep, it's true, having no sig is boring. But so is this one. Which makes my point... relatively pointless.

typical. Neither amazon has updated its page with an exact date in March.

Whatever, I mean it was originally delayed from Fall 2008, so I suppose this doesn't come as much of a surprise. It's still upsetting, especially coming the day after that nice long video about how great it was going to be... I suppose Friday is the day to announce news like this.

On one hand I'm pretty annoyed and pissed off. But on the other hand if they modify the gameplay and improve the AI then it's a blessing in disguise.

But now I feel annoyed!

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.

Yeah. I knew this yesterday but couldn't say. Anyway, I'll be happy if the game is good. Better get it right & late rather than buggy but on-time.

Cheers, if M2 and Kingdoms were anything to go by they needed about an extra month.

I don't mind the delay as long as it's used to make the game better.

This had better be the best game ever. They have had an extra 3 months to develop it. At least give us a demo to play with.

It is not enough that I succeed, but my enemies must fail.

at the empire total war site stated
but they said online campaign will be a feature they will work on during the month
in my opinion that could make up for it

It seems, Boetje, that you've had too much medicine tonight...
