had to break some bad news to gamers who are awaiting the launch of their upcoming title Red Orchestra 2
by informing us all that the game will be pushed back a couple of weeks. While it's never a shock to those of us in the industry and the consumer market to hear of a game going through delays, it is a bit surprising that this news is coming within just four weeks of launch. Usually, this means that a beta test did not go well and there were some major bugs that needed to be fixed. Most people have mixed reactions to news like this, and that depends on how anxious you are to get your hands on the title. In the long run, it isn't a bad idea to make sure that you get as many kinks worked out as possible.
