Activision: Quake Wars coming in the third quarter
id Software and Splash Damage have been playing their cards relatively close to their chest with respect to the release schedule for their upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. However, an announcement by the game's publisher, Activision, has shed some light on when folks can expect to get their hands on the game.
As Shacknews reports, Activision has revealed in its 2007 financial results announcement that it "would move the release of Enemy Territory(TM): Quake Wars into the second quarter." Activision's second fiscal quarter corresponds to the third calendar quarter, so that statement means Quake Wars could come out some time between July and September. That said, during a conference held after the financial announcement yesterday, Activision CFO Thomas TIppl reportedly stated, "id Software makes the final decision on the release date."
