On April 12, we reported that MMO New World is delayed from May to August due to COVID-19. The delay was massive because Amazon Game Studio’s much-anticipated game was now delayed for a long time. If this wasn’t enough, well the game has been delayed once again.
This time, the game has been delayed from August 25 to Spring 2021. This decision has been taken because the developers have added a list of new features that need to be executed. Likewise, they will need more time to enhance and develop those features. Most of these features were suggested by the players who had played the Alpha version of the game.
“I’m proud of the hard work the team has done, making the game ready for launch with the features we intended for release,” said studio director Rich Lawrence in the announcement. “We also have a list of features that we planned to start working on once we were in live development, as that is part of operating an MMO.
“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. 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.”
“We’re passionate about the game we’ve been making and want to add more features and content before we share it with a wider audience.”
New World from Amazon is their current massive project. It’ll feature a vast multiplayer mod, that will further be enhanced by RPG Style gameplay. New World is being developed by Amazon Game Studios along with Double Helix Games. Lastly, It’ll only be released on PC supporting Microsoft Windows.
