XCOM hit with delay, not coming in 2012

If XCOM hit its original release date, the game would be out by now. It was originally set for a March 6, 2012 street date, but was then pushed back to Fiscal Year 2013 (April 1, 2012 through March 31, 2013.)

Now the most current delay in a Take-Two earnings report places the game in Fiscal Year 2014. Meaning the game is now scheduled for sometime between April 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014.

Obviously, that's not exactly a narrow window. We'd be very surprised if XCOM somehow managed to slip beyond 2013. Hopefully we'll get clarification on this issue at E3 in a couple weeks.

    I remember when "street dated" meant that the game was for sure coming out on that date. Those two words no longer have meaning in the gaming world.

    Agreed. (Update - I was going to leave it at "agreed" but then was inspired to mention that when reCAPTCHA served me "scrutinizes sidames" and I began to painstakingly type it in, it felt highly unjust to have to type a 19-character reCAPTCHA for a lousy well-now-it-barely-seems-worth-it 7-character comment, so I felt it necessary to give my comment enough weight to justify that awful reCAPTCHA with this story.)
