Microsoft have reportedly changed the release dates of three Xbox titles which were due for release before the end of this year.


Both Midtown Madness 3 and Kung Fu Chaos were due for an Autumn 2002 release, but have now been pushed in to the first quarter of next year.

The biggest shift in release dates though is Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, which seems likely to have been delayed until as late as June 2003.

No information about the European release dates has been made available, but it seems likely that Europe will also suffer from the slippage, meaning we might as well scrub Midtown Madness from our list of big titles we were looking forward to playing this Christmas.
