universal.jpegUniversal Studio’s plans for upcoming HD DVD titles are no longer clear.

High Def Digest is reporting that when asked to confirm recent retail reports that it was planning a March 18 HD DVD debut for the Oscar nominee ‘Atonement,’ a Universal rep said that the studio’s entire HD DVD slate is currently in flux – leaving open the possibility that it may not issue any more titles in the format.

Which titles might be affected by such a move? Prior to Tuesday’s announcement, Universal had only confirmed two upcoming HD DVD releases: the Chevy Chase comedy ‘Fletch’ (due March 11), and the Tom Hanks-Julia Roberts starrer, ‘Charlie Wilson’s War’ (which had been planned for sometime in the April-May timeframe).
