Brothers in Arms on the retreat

Delay confirmed for Gearbox Software's Hell's Highway. We're not too surprised

Brothers in Arms addicts hotly anticipating latest instalment Hell's Highway spurting out of Santa's sack this Christmas, have the tissues ready - it's suffered minor pushback. Originally pencilled in for an end-of-2006 release, Ubisoft has confirmed with us this morning that Gearbox's sequel, heading to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, will now be out in the first quarter of 2007. No reason for the delay was given.
