ArcheAge: Unchained is Delayed
Gamigo have both upset and surprised a lot of players during their livestream this afternoon. Players have been anticipating the release of ArcheAge: Unchained ever since it was announced last month – and then the large graphical overhaul that would accompany the launch of the update on both versions of the game. This was expected on September 30th – as was confirmed by Gamigo themselves. However, during the stream players asked a plethora of questions – questions that Gamigo went silent in an attempt to answer. Why? Because they didn’t actually have them. The team behind Unchained didn’t have answers to various questions players were seeking. Now, there are two scenarios here: Scenario 1 consists of Gamigo being aware they couldn’t answer player concerns, and delayed the game to make sure that it would be in a state that would still be profitable, even at the expense of player discontent. Scenario 2 consists of Gamigo having no idea what they’re doing and shit hitting the fan. Honestly, I hope it’s the former, as opposed to the latter because this is going effect a lot of potential players. I’m aware a lot of you took time off work for this and are now screwed. I also know that this could very well be the first of many future issues that could arrive due to Gamigo not being the uh.. most competent publisher.
Regardless, the game is now expected to release on October 15th. If you want to get in on a giveaway I’m doing because you don’t want to pay for the opportunity to try this game whenever it finally releases – then head on over to the giveaway and participate.
