Bodycount's bodycount rises, game delayed to summer

Following the departure of creative director Stuart Black, the Bodycount team at Codemasters is losing more high-profile talent, this time Codemasters Guildford GM Adrian Bolton, according to Eurogamer. Also out: Bodycount's original spring 2011 release date, replaced by "early summer."

CEO Rod Cousens said that the delay wasn't necessarily related to the outgoing developers, but instead is about quality concerns with the game. "He's left, but I don't think the company centres around one person. If I left I don't think the company falls over," Cousens said, noting that "someone will fill the void." The delay happened due to Codemasters' unwillingness to "compromise the game."
