SSX

Platforms: Microsoft Xbox 360 | Sony PlayStation 3

Today, Todd Batty the Creative Director of the team working on SSX at EA Canada informed fans of the series that there would be a two week delay before the game’s release. This effectively pushes the release date back to February 28th in North America and to March 2nd in Europe.

In Todd’s own words:
“Over the course of more than 10 years of making games I have not worked on a single project where our team did not wish, coming down the home stretch, that we could have just a bit more time. Time to do all the little things that may not be noticeable during the first hour or two playing the game, but are appreciated over the course of days, weeks, months and beyond.

SSX was one of the games that always took the time to do exactly that. There is a reason why Tricky and SSX3 are still among the highest rated games of all time, and it is because even playing them today they still stand the test of time. Our goal from Day 1 was to re-launch this amazing franchise with a new SSX game that could live up to that legacy.

We are incredibly proud of where we are today and extremely thankful for all the support that you, the community, have given us in helping to shape this game. We are making this game for you, and we want to make sure that you’ll love it.”


I can’t speak for other fans of the series but I am happy to wait a couple of extra weeks if it means getting a more polished game that meets the high standards the dedicated Montreal based team have set for themselves. Last month The Digital Fix had an in depth preview feature for SSX which you can read here and you can also follow this link to check out the latest gameplay footage.
