Today is a monumental day for Android gamers. With the recent announcement of Vice City’s impending release and the following news, it looks like a lot of us are going to have sore thumbs in the coming weeks.
Gameloft announced today that Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour will see a release tomorrow on December 6th. Unfortunately, the release is for iOS only, and the Android version will be delayed for a little while longer.
While this news may be a little disheartening, Gameloft also confirmed that the Android version will be releasing “shortly after”. There’s no explicit comment on how long we’ll have to wait for the release, but at least we know it is coming soon.
Gameloft didn’t list any specific reasons for the delay, but I’m pretty sure it’s due to device testing. There are so many different Android devices out there, Gameloft developers are probably optimizing the game for a wide range of models. The delay is clearly warranted if they’re working to ensure a smooth launch on release day. After all, would you rather a stable working version was released, essentially giving you a chance to play, or would you rather we see an error riddled game?
I’m opting for the latter of those two options. I’d much rather be able to experience the game in full working order, especially after swallowing that premium price tag it’s probably going to have.
Nevertheless, Gameloft has confirmed that Modern Combat 4 is coming soon, real soon indeed.
Sound off in the comments below if you’re saving some money for Modern Combat 4! Is anyone spending their extra money on Vice City instead?
I’ve included the extended reveal trailer for you after the break.
