Spec Ops: The Line Interview: Crossing the Narrative Desert With Lead Writer Walt Williams

Spec Ops: The Line, which takes players on a military operation inside Dubai after a post-apocalyptic sandstorm, will be available in stores tomorrow. We recently had a chance to talk with Walt Williams, the game’s very verbose Lead Writer at Yager Development.

During our interview, we got him to open up about what inspired the team at Yager and how moral choices play into the narrative , as well as Dubai’s status as a “city that shouldn’t be” and how that made it the perfect place to set a game.

Take a walk into the eye of the storm with us after the break. (more…)

Max Payne 3, Agent, Spec Ops: The Line delayed

After 14 years in development, Duke Nukem Forever will finally be released next month after countless delays. But three other games in Take-Two’s development slate weren’t so lucky as they’ve been hit by Duke’s delay stick.

Spec Ops: The Line, which debuted in an amazing trailer at last year’s Spike TV Video Game Awards, will now be released sometime in the Spring/Summer of 2012. It had previously been scheduled for release this Fall.

A pair of Rockstar titles were also delayed as Max Payne 3 and Agent have been pushed back to release date unknown.

But don’t worry, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has assured us, “Max Payne 3 and Agent are still in development.” Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait another 14 years.
