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.
