No Red Steel Sequel until Winter 09

We won't be seeing this scantily clad lovely again until Winter 09, according to

Every once in a while in the land of game journalism, a story will bizarrely pop up with little or absolutely no supporting information.

This post is such a story.

It was originally posted on French gaming site, Wiiz.

The article suggests that Ubisoft’s Paris team is postponing the release of the Red Steel sequel to as late as the cold Winter months of 2009. Strangely, the article gives no information as to why this might be, only that it’s happening; it seems to be pure speculation, but it’s been a slow news day, so I’m going to post the damn article anyway.

Did you think that we’ve been waiting for Red Steel 2 for awhile now? Well, according to a rumor, we should be prepared for a bit of a wait. Red Steel 2 won’t be showing its face anywhere around Winter 2008. It’s starting to sound like Winter 2009 may be a better bet. Ubisoft has announced that the game will indeed use the MotionPlus accessory, and that’s not even coming out until Spring. At the very earliest, we could expect Red Steel 2 to launch side-by-side with the MotionPlus…but you and I both know that that isn’t going to happen!


As the article suggests, it’s possible that Ubisoft are getting to grips with the MotionPlus accessory and its necessary coding. It could be that they’re developing the AI to levels necessary for reacting to a player’s 1:1 movements. It could be that they’re could be perfecting the suggested Online mode. It could be that they’re applying a heavy sheen of polish to the game that the first game sorely missed.

Whatever it is, perhaps this delay will see Ubisoft live up to their claim of “Nintendo like quality” games.

What we can be sure of though, is that The Conduit won’t have any serious competition for a few months when it launches in Q1 of next year.
