Although Spec Ops: The Line was available for public beta testing last fall, it will not be seen on store shelves for quite a long time. Something must have happened during development because Take-Two has officially detailed that the game is delayed until its first fiscal quarter of 2013. That means that the earliest we could see the title would be around March 2012, though it’s tentatively penciled in for an April-September 2012 release window.
This news was made available in the publisher’s earnings report, although no official reason was given for this lengthy delay. Hopefully the game will end up being well worth the wait.
