    Atomic Games announced today their decision to delay the release of Breach for XBox Live Arcade.  Atomic has stated that they will use the extra time to add in a new Hardcore mode as well as other new content.  Breach was delayed largely due to later availability of an XBox Live Arcade for XBox360 ship date from Microsoft than anticipated.

    “While work on Breach is actually done, we did miss our small window with Microsoft to get it up on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 in late June as we had planned. Luckily there were features we had been thinking of adding to the title, and now we have the opportunity to do just that. Unlike with Six Days in Fallujah, which was delayed indefinitely when Konami pulled out, we are publishing Breach ourselves, and it will be out in January,” said Peter Tamte, President of Atomic Games.“I’ve always said, we don’t make simulations for the public and we don’t make games for the government. However, we have come to realize there is a growing segment of the gaming population that wants to test these simulation systems out for themselves, which is why we’re adding features, like a Hardcore mode, to Breach.”

    Breach will now be available in January 2011.
