Amazon’s ‘New World’ MMO game has been until spring next year. This is based on the feedback the team received from testers and alpha players. The announcement comes shortly after they pulled their sci-fi shooter, Crucible, back into closed beta earlier this month because of low demand.
New World was meant to release in May, but was delayed until August. Today’s report is now the game’s second delay. Richard Lawrence, director of game technology at Amazon Game Studios, gave a statement in a blog post regarding the setback, saying:
“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,” Lawrence said. “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 fully release.”
Although the release has been delayed for quite some time, players will still be able to play the game for during a limited-time beta test on August 25th.
