Activision Pushes True Crime: Hong Kong Into Next Year

Publisher Activision says the open-world action game True Crime: Hong Kong will slip past its original fall 2010 release schedule into next year, citing the need to meet the game's necessary quality bar.
Publisher Activision says the open-world action game True Crime: Hong Kong will slip past its original fall 2010 release schedule into next year, citing the need to meet the game's necessary quality bar. Announced late last year, True Crime: Hong Kong is in development at Vancouver-based United Front Games, which also developed ModNation: Racers. It is the first game in the series not developed by original creator Luxoflux, which closed earlier this year. Discussing the game's delay, an Activision executive said the move was made "in order to give the development team more time to deliver the high-quality entertainment experience they envision for the game." As an externally-developed core-targeted title, True Crime: Hong Kong represents an increasingly uncommon publishing arrangement for Activision, which prefers to deal in fully-internal games. No new target release period was given, beyond the general 2011 target.
