Killzone creator Guerrilla Games’ new IP, Horizon: Zero Dawn has been pushed from its initial 2016 release window to a firm March 1, 2017 release date.
“In an effort to meet the considerable worldwide demand, and to ensure that all gamers worldwide have the opportunity to play the game on day one.”
While console gamers can get an early glimpse of the new NFS, EA has delayed the PC release to Spring 2016.
PC retail codes can now be activated on Steam but digital sales have been suspended till later this year while the developers work to fix the game’s many performance issues.
“It’s become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned,” say Naughty Dog’s Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann.
To make up for the further delay, anyone who has pre-ordered the PC game already will get additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online.
The developer-publisher said it will use the extra weeks to further test and polish the game and promised that the PC version will be accompanied by the 30-player GTA Online, complete with Online Heists.
“Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks,” says CD Projekt RED.
The game was scheduled for release on 8th October, but neither distributor Milestone Interactive, nor publisher Sony appears to have a firm release date or release period to share.
The open-world arcade racer was initially set for release on 14th November, but has been delayed to allow for a second console beta before release.
Naughty Dog’s PS4 re-release of the award-winning game releases in Europe on 30th July, but it won’t hit shelves in India before the first week of August. We suspect it could take even longer.
The game released worldwide on 17th April, but was delayed to the 29th for India. That date has come and gone, and there’s no new release date.
Why small delays could result in smoother launches and meaningful preorder campaigns.
“Polishing it to perfection”.
