New World Delayed Until "Spring 2021"
In news that a lot of people had predicted, the New World devs have confirmed that the upcoming MMORPG is going to be delayed. Yup – after suffering a delay already earlier this year, it turns out New World will be delayed yet again, but this time further than anyone had anticipated.
According to the official New World website, and I quote here, “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.” Yet the statement made just prior to that “players like the game” is about as far from the truth as you can get. Players all over the internet have been voicing their concerns with the game all year. Complaints about how bad the game is in its current state have become the norm. In no way do the majority of players “like the game.” However at the same time, I do give them kudos for taking the time to correct the issues currently wrong with the game and make improvements where they need to be made. Otherwise New World would be launching to a playerbase of thirsty players.. and would be absolutely trashed and dead within the week.
We’ll see if Amazon Game Studios and the New World devs can pull this off and turn this around and develop an MMORPG truly worth playing.
