Zipper Confirms SOCOM 4 Delay, Promises Game Will Be ‘Worth The Wait’

Posted By | On 30th, Jul. 2010

Zipper Interactive’s next title in the SOCOM series is certainly the subject of a lot of anticipation, particularly after the disappointment of the series’ debut on the PS3, which was handled by a different developer. SOCOM 4, which was due to hit the console later this year, has now been delayed to 2011.

On SOCOM’s official site, Zipper Interactive posted:

Dear SOCOM faithful,

Some of you may have heard through your favorite media outlets that SOCOM 4 is now a 2011 title, and we are writing this letter to you, our community, to confirm that SOCOM 4 is indeed scheduled for release in 2011.

While we’re certainly aware that you’ve been looking forward to playing SOCOM 4 this year, we don’t want to take any shortcuts. Instead, we want to deliver the best and most immersive SOCOM game we possibly can and we’re going to use our extra time to do just that.

Over the coming months, you can expect further updates on our 2011 release, in addition to other gameplay and feature announcements on the official SOCOM 4 blog, which can be found at blog.socom.com.

On behalf of everyone here at Zipper Interactive, we want to thank you for being patient and thank you for sticking with us — it will be worth the wait.

Sincerely,

The SOCOM 4 Team”

I’m not in a hurry, guys. Your last title, MAG, released earlier this year, was prettygood- but that’s about it, it was nothing remarkable. Something I would attribute to a few rough edges and a general lack of polish. The game’s response at retail, which was tepid, would tend to reinforce my statement.

Just take your time, and, as you have said, make it the best game you can. Good luck, and I look forward to SOCOM 4.
