Xbox 360 World in Conflict Stalled Until 2008

Though the PC version retailed nearly two weeks ago, the forthcoming Xbox 360 version of Massive Entertainment's World in Conflict won't see a release anytime soon. Originally slated for a fall 2007 release, publisher Sierra said today the title will come to Microsoft's console some time in 2008.

Known for the series of Ground Control real-time tactical games on PC, developer Massive's newest outing explores an alternate reality in which the late Cold War Soviet Union has become a very real threat.

    Who cares? I've been playing WiC PC for over a week now, and it is brilliant! I can't imagine how the x360 version could come close to being as good as the pc, lacking a mouse and all.

    All the more reason not to care is that WiC- PC will likely have a very active modding/mapping community once they get the SDK/map editor out. Anybody playing on X360 is going to miss out on all the cool stuff people make to plug into the beautiful graphics engine. The devs are very involved with the community and keep us updated on the forums. They've said the modding/mapping tools are close to completion.

    Everybody with even a passing interest in strategy/tactical games should get World in Conflict for the PC! It is better than the X360 version could possibly be and is already available. Did I mention that the gameplay is brilliant and I would make love to the graphics engine if only it had an orifice?

      Agree 100% with finneydp. I also paid $20 less than what it will cost on the 360.

      Funny line at the end. I picked up WiC last night and finally gave the 1st level and run through and it really does a great job setting a mood. There is shit constantly blowing up everywhere - and 'shit' is the appropriate word most of the time because buildings explode randomly from random artillery being thrown around --- I loved Company of Heroes for my RTS fix but this might put that in the CD holder for a bit and give WiC a go-around. I must say this game gives me a very satisfying grin when I 'make it rain' artillery.

      It is a truly fantastic game. I beat the campaign Friday night and enjoyed my play through of the game immensely.
