EA delays new Sims, Godfather, Dragon Age titles
Also confirms new games including Dead Space for Wii
Electronic Arts has delayed a number of high-profile releases including the latest in the ever-popular The Sims franchise.
The Sims 3 will now be released in June rather than this month, while BioWare's PC title Dragon Age: Origins has been pushed back to the "last half of 2009". The Godfather II has also slipped from February to later this year.
"In the case of Sims 3, we're moving this title to June 3 to give us additional time to build the worldwide marketing campaign a title like this deserves," said CEO John Riccitiello.
During a conference call following the announcement of poor financial results for the third quarter, the firm also confirmed a number of new titles.
A game based on new IP Dead Space will be released for Nintendo's Wii, while Mass Effect 2 will be released on multiple platforms and a sequel to Battlefield: Bad Company is also in the works.
