Alpha Protocol Gets Official Release Date

After multiple delays, Sega and Obsidian Entertainment have announced that Spy RPG “Alpha Protocol” will land on store shelves on June 1’st.  The game was supposed to come out last February, but was pushed back to October, and then again to “Spring 2010”, without any explanation.  As a result, many are reasonably skeptical of the so-called firm date.

Also contributing to the skepticism is the lack of information about the game.  Alpha Protocol will supposedly be a stealth-adventure game in the vein of Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell that features “RPG Elements”.  The delays could stem from the fact that stealth and adventure games are departure from the developer’s comfort zone:  As a developer, Obsidian is known exclusively for it’s RPGs, including “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2” and “Neverwinter Nights 2”.  In other words, don’t think that you anything about what this game will be like or if it will be good; there is absolutely no way to tell.

After Alpha Protocol, Obsidian’s will presumably dive head-first into the next entry in the “Fallout” series, “New Vegas”.
