The official story: Ubisoft reps did not respond to requests for comment.
What we heard: Internet message boards were buzzing today after eagle-eyed surfers noticed that the release date for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter on Ubisoft's official Web site had changed from February 2006 to March 2006. What seemed to be lost in the shuffle was that the site now makes no mention of the previously announced GameCube edition of Warfighter. Even the official Warfighter Web site has excised all mention of the GameCube, and on the game's messageboards, a Ubisoft community manager says the game is unlikely to ever hit shelves.
Originally scheduled for release on the PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360, and GameCube sometime this holiday season, the game was first pushed to a February release back in October. By all accounts, the first four versions are still on the way, but the fate of the GameCube edition is apparently up in the air. Online retailer EB Games appears to have pulled the listing from its site, but GameStop still lists the game and is taking preorders for an expected February 1 release.
Bogus or not bogus?: Basically not bogus. Between the Ubi site, the Advanced Warfighter site, and the Ubi forum administrator, the GameCube version's fate looks pretty much sealed.
