Haze, developed by Free Radical Design, was previously scheduled for a fiscal Q4 release, which would've been sometime in the January-March quarter.
Ubisoft said in an earnings release Wednesday it would raise 2008-2009 sales forecasts to €1 billion (about $1.5 billion) because of the game's delay, up from previous guidance of €975 million (about $1.4 billion).

Haze script writer Rob Yescombe has dismissed all speculation that Haze would become anything but a PlayStation 3 exclusive, running contrary to earlier reports by Ubisoft that Haze was a PS3 exclusive just "for now."

Every console fanboy’s most favorite/dreaded time of the month has come again. The NPD sales chart is here and with it comes news of the frontline on the console war, at least for the US side.
