With Activision recently pushing back Singularity to 2010
, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia thinks the same fate will befall the highly anticipated StarCraft II
. The game is currently slated for a release this October
. However, the game's beta suffered a delay recently, which, according to Bhatia's comments to the Wall Street Journal
, casts its Q4 2009 release target in doubt.
With Modern Warfare 2
on slate for later this year, Bhatia doesn't see the delay hurting Activision's coffers. In fact, it's suggested a 2010 release would actually help company profits during what is expected to be a relatively slow year.
