Summer is usually the dry spell in the gaming industry. Hardly any big titles get released since most of the publishers hoard the big ones until just in time for the holidays.
Case in point, today I have read that Forza 3 is set to be released in late October, and Dirt 2 is set sometime in November (can you tell I gravitate towards driving games).
And for every good bit of news, there almost always seems to be some bad news. For example, it was just announced that Splinter Cell: Conviction is being delayed (again) until first quarter 2010. Yeah, I also like FPS too. Nuts.
Maybe because the weather is nice that game publishers think that everyone is outside enjoying themselves. But with practically all school-aged gamers having ample time on their hands with no threats of homework, you'd think that some publisher or two out there would realize that summer maybe isn't such a bad time to drop a major title or two.
Hey, I can dream, right?
