If you’re eager to get your hands on High Voltage’s big shooter sequel, you may not like what I’m about to say. It unfortunately looks like Conduit 2’s release has been pushed to the first quarter of 2011. Ah well, these things happen.
If it makes you feel any better though, the delay is happening for a pretty good cause. With the extra time, High Voltage will be including support for yet another control scheme – The Classic Controller/Classic Controller Pro. If there’s anything that the series has done right, it’s providing a bevy of customizable control options, and adding one option more to the mix will just sweeten the pot. This should help to attract the XBoxers and PS3ers out there who aren’t really feeling the point-and-shoot love of games like Metroid Prime 3 and the original Conduit.
Now that it’s going to support a more standard FPS control scheme, I’m curious to see how Conduit 2 will stand up next to other dual stick shooters of the same ilk. What do you folks think?
