'Breed' - Demo Delayed AGAIN

by Rainier on April 2, 2003 @ 1:53 p.m. PST | Filed under News

The proposed demo for Breed, an epic first person shooter for the PC, has been delayed yet again. The release date of the Breed demo has been postponed until the middle of April. This has been due to problems in two areas: with the localization of the demo (the demo is published in German and English language) & with various smaller technical problems. This has resulted in unforeseeable delays in the production process and ultimately a delay in releasing the demo. CDV prefers therefore to give to the Breed demo some more time so that gamers expectations can be fulfilled. An exact demo release date will be communicated in the course of the coming week.
