About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

Majesco Delays 'Advent Rising' (Xbox/PC)

by Judy on July 16, 2004 @ 7:26 a.m. PDT

Advent Rising is a 3rd person, action/adventure game presented in a stunning cinematic format that delivers an unprecedented variety of addictive game play experiences. Built on the Unreal Warfare Engine, it offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. Advent Rising is akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in a continuously evolving series of sequences and events.

Majesco also announced that due to the strong retail performance of its Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Advance Video lineup; the upcoming release of its TV Arcade products and holiday line-up, including the action/horror sequel, BloodRayne 2, the Company remains confident in its previously announced guidance of net revenues in the range of $100 to $110 million, and operating income between $12 to $15 million for its 2004 fiscal year.

"We are taking advantage of our strong fourth quarter line-up to allow Advent to fully realize all aspects of its franchise potential," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer of Majesco. "This change in strategy also enables us to free the game from what we expect to be an overcrowded holiday season so that we can maximize the impact of our marketing campaign."

One of the most popular titles emerging from the industry's annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, Advent Rising is the first in an epic trilogy of sci-fi action games for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and PC. Working with award-winning science fiction author Orson Scott Card, developer GlyphX Games has created a gripping adventure that thrusts gamers into a continuously evolving series of sequences and events that unfold in an incredible intergalactic saga. In Advent Rising, players make decisions that effect not only what they experience in the first game, but the entire Advent trilogy.
