Unigine OilRush Linux Game Delayed To March 2011

At the beginning of October there was the announcement of the Unigine OilRush game, a strategy game developed atop the Unigine Engine and developed by Unigine Corp itself as one of the first real games available to multi-platform gamers of this advanced, very interesting game engine. The screenshots continue to look impressive and it was supposed to be released in Q4'2010, but now Unigine Corp is sharing that the game's release date has been pushed back to March of 2011.

A three month delay in Unigine's first game release is a bit disappointing, but it comes due to taking longer to negotiate with their publisher and ensuring the game itself will be great for all gamers upon its release. The precise release date in March has not been given officially, but it should come shortly after GDC 2011 (the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco) that is running from 28 February through 4 March.

The multi-player portion of OilRush is effectively complete and these Russian developers are now focusing upon the single player campaign mode. While delivering this unfortunate news, they have also released some new in-game screenshots for your pleasure.

For those wanting another game based upon this multi-platform, very-demanding engine, Unigine is running a Linux game development competition right now and you have good chances of winning (circa 10 entries right now).
