Bloodborne, the newest action RPG from From Software, has been officially delayed by just over a month. In a post uploaded today to the PlayStation Blog, SCE Japan Studio announced that the PS4 exclusive will be delayed until March 2015. Masaaki Yamagiwa, one of the producers of the game, said the following:
While development continues unabated, we would like our team to deliver the best possible final experience. We were gratified by the feedback and data we received from those who participated in our limited Alpha test. The extra production time will also allow us to better integrate these learnings.
While I can understand the frustration from people who’ve been waiting for this game, the delay isn’t actually bad news. It’s going to give the developers more time to fix the bugs found during the alpha testing, which means a better product on launch. Quite a few big game releases have been delayed for extra development time lately, including Watch_Dogs and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The delay has pushed the release date for the game back in North America until March 24th. Europe will get it on March 25th, Japan gets it March 26th, and the UK and Ireland get it March 28th.
