Ubi Soft have today made a suprise announcement about the release of their cel-shaded first-person shooter XIII, which will see it being delayed until late next year.


The game, which did have an Xbox release date of February 2003, will now be put back until the third quarter of 2003 but will be released on all formats. The extra time is to allow for new elements of gameplay to be introduced, and also integrate specific features for each platform.

Ubi Soft commented on the delay saying "Because quality is always our priority, we have decided to take additional time to ensure that this game is as close to perfect as possible."

XIII should find it's way on to all formats by September 2003.
