The upcoming MMO, New World, has been delayed once again.
New World has been delayed into next year, Amazon Game Studios announced. They stated that they decided to delay the game in order to have time to get things where they want them before release. Thus, they changed the date that the game will be released, as well as when the final beta will take place.
"I'm proud of the hard work the team has done, making the game ready for launch with the features we intended for release," states Studio Director Rich Lawrence. "We also have a list of features that we planned to start working on once we were in live development, as that is part of operating an MMO. When we examined the feedback we received over the last several months from our Alpha audience, we saw that players like the game, and they would like to see even more of it. In particular, we want to ensure that the most dedicated players have plenty of middle and endgame experiences as they venture through Aeternum. We want our players to feel completely immersed in the game, and know that our studio stands for quality and lasting gameplay you can trust - and that means added time to get things where we want them before we full release.
"As a result, we will be changing our launch date - and correspondingly, our final beta test - to spring 2021. We don't make the decision lightly, and we have urgency about getting the game to you as quickly as possible at the best quality - with some additions that will make the experience even better."
Lawrence then went on to announced that they will be providing a special opportunity for those who have signed up for New World's beta, have pre-ordered the game, and the Alpha testers. These gamers will be able to play the MMO in its current state for a limited time starting on August 25th. The studio will send an email to those customers that will have the details on how to participate.
New World will release for PC in spring 2021.
