Blur shunts itself into 2010

Bizarre Creations has been with no doubt talking up their upcoming power up-based racing game Blur. However, the scheduled date for its release, which was 2009, is now fading and looking, well, blurred. In fact, it’s way out of focus as Activision today announced that Blur will not be hitting any shelves during the remaining part of 2009. New date, 2010. Yeah, just the year, no specifics.

The delay is due to refinement and enhancement on the multiplayer part of the game which Bizarre is focusing on at the moment. “We are committed to making Blur a great new racing franchise, and we are very encouraged by the game’s design,” stated Mike Griffith, President and CEO, Activision. “The additional time will allow the studio to fully optimize the vision they set out to create for Blur including a distinctive and groundbreaking multiplayer mode that will appeal to a broad audience.”
