New World MMORPG Release Delayed Cause Of COVID 19 Pandemic
MMOBEEP has found out that Amazon Game Studios’ 17th-century survival MMORPG, New World, was delayed. It was initially scheduled to be launched in May but was pushed back to August 25th due to the challenges the team faced amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, the studio claims that they will undoubtedly be delaying the video game’s official launch to Spring 2021.
“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.”
According to Studio Director, Rich Lawrence said that they needed more time to incorporate tester responses as well as to include more functions to the game. “We want to ensure that the most dedicated players have plenty of middle and endgame experiences as they venture through Aeternum.” He also said, “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.”
As thanks to the Community for their ongoing assistance, Amazon will be providing gamers who enrolled for beta as well as pre-ordered with a chance to try to the complete game out in its present state on August 25th. Qualified players will be sent out an email on exactly how to enter.
