Nadat eerder bekend werd dat Messiah de kerstmis deadline niet zal halen, blijkt ook de release van Daikatana wederom vertraagd te zijn:The Adrenaline Vault has confirmed that ION Storm's Daikatana will not be finished before Christmas. ION's John Kavanagh told us, "After much effort, we finally have Daikatana to the point where we can say we have a great game on our hands. Unfortunately, we are too late for Christmas, but as always, we have put quality first. I realize this is frustrating to anyone supporting this title, but I'm sure you will agree it is imperative that we begin building the reputation of Ion Storm as a premier quality developer." This report comes after notification from a source who wished to remain anonymous that publisher Eidos rejected the most recent release candidate.
