Monaco delayed for Xbox Live


A note was posted onto Monaco’s Facebook page regarding the release of the Xbox Live version of the game, with an unknown new release date:

We just discovered that there is an issue which requires that we push back our Xbox Live arcade game release date a little.  We’ve already submitted an update to Microsoft to fix the problem, and as soon as we know that the issue is fixed we’ll have a new release date.  I know our fans have been waiting a long time for the game, and hopefully they’ll have the patience to wait just a little while longer.  What’s mine will be yours very, very soon!

When the stakes are high, risk it all by going double or nothing! Electronic Arts Inc. today announced that a downloadable demo for Army of TWO™ The Devil’s Cartel, the next installment of the franchise celebrated for its dynamic two player co-operative gameplay and over-the-top blockbuster action, will be available on Xbox LIVE®  Marketplace and PlayStation®Network starting on March 12.

With the lives of others on the line, the dynamic duo will need to split up as one player runs into battle face-to-face with their opposition, while the other takes to the sky in a helicopter to man a mini gun and provide cover. Complete with epic explosions, massive destruction and the brand new Overkill feature, gamers will be able to experience the adrenaline and palm sweating action before the game launches on March 26.
