Microsoft delays Kinect Star Wars, release now far, far away

“Star Wars” fans will have to keep waiting for the Xbox Kinect game.

“Kinect Star Wars” was expected to be one of the big sellers this holiday season but Microsoft quietly decided to hold off releasing the title, apparently because its quality wasn’t up to snuff.

The game was also a highlight of Microsoft’s presence at the E3 game conference, where this photo was taken during the Xbox press event.

A Microsoft spokeswoman today confirmed the delay, which I found out about via Kotaku.

There’s no word on when the game will ship. That also puts on hold the “Star Wars” themed Xbox 360 console and controllers that were revealed last month.

“We elected to move the launch date beyond holiday to ensure we’re hitting the full potential of the title,” said Breanna Wilson, at Xbox PR firm Edelman.

So it’s being held for quality reasons?

“It’s more just to deliver the best game possible,” Wilson said.

The game isn’t being canceled outright, she said.

A spokeswoman for LucasArts offered similar statements, saying “we remain committed” to making the best game possible.
