Two games that were supposedly fast approaching have now been pushed back a bit. In a financial conference call this week EA CEO John Riccitiello mentioned that The Sims 3 and The Godfather 2 would both be delayed from release.
The Sims 3 will land on store shelves on June 2nd, 2009 for PC, Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch and mobile devices.
“The June launch combined with the break-through game the team is building gives us the perfect runway to create awareness for The Sims 3,” said Russell Arons, Vice President of Marketing for EA. “The Sims 3 will be the original IP summer blockbuster of 2009 as we build off the success of the best-selling PC franchise of all time to create awareness with both loyal Sims fans and new players.”
The Godfather 2 will arrive sometime during the 2010 fiscal year. EA said the delay will help create more buzz about the title that had been set to launch this month.
