A short post before a very long one later this week:
- DC Universe Online delayed until 2010. As is The Agency, which seems to exist in a perpetual "almost finished, really, but we haven't decided to announce any beta / launch dates yet".
- Champions Online will launch (still Spring 2009) with the level cap set to 40, not 50 as was originally indicated in a Game Informer (March 2008) issue. Which probably means the Omega System, ChampO's secretive end-game system, is off the table for launch too.
DCUO's news isn't that surprising but is still disappointing. DCUO will need a lot of work despite the attractiveness of the small areas they've demoed.
ChampO's news is surprising AND disappointing. Cryptic dropped the launch content of CoH/V from lvl 50 to lvl 40 as well (lvl 40+ content was later patched in and it was pretty good) but you would think they'd have learned from that.
