Why would you be late? Game programming is just another form of programming like a desktop app or complex web system.

I am not sure why you think this would help or hinder you.

As modi said it is not too late to get into game programming, since the majority of today's game programmers are essentially self taught. I'm a normal computer science graduate who taught himself how to program games.

What might be of more benefit to you would be to maybe take a more focused masters like one in game development. Also, given that you will be a computer engineer, the option of being a console hardware developer is also open to you for companies like Sony and Microsoft.
