New release date for Geometry Wars sequel

Geometry WarsWe’ve waited too long for the sequel to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. What started as a side project while producing Project Gotham Racing 3 turned into the best launch title the Xbox 360 had going for it. While it wasn’t a Halo, it certainly gave people a reason to justify their hefty console purchase. Sorry Perfect Dark Zero.

So why haven’t we had a direct sequel sooner? Beats me, but I for one am just glad that we are actually getting a second chance to enjoy the controller breaking, eye melting, and sweating inducing gameplay of GW all over again. To say the wait has been unbearable would be a drastic description, but it sure hasn’t been easy.

While we were scheduled to receive Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 next month, Microsoft has decided to bump up the release by a full seven days, and give it to us on July30th. Yep, we are getting our GW fix sooner rather than later. With new modes, four person co-op, and numerous other new gameplay tweaks sure to keep even the most hardcore players guessing, it is nice to see our summer Christmas come early.

Thank you Microsoft, but let’s not wait so long for the next iteration.
