After crossing my fingers the game was not going to delayed anymore and be released on August 20th, Galaxy Trail and Stevie once again had to bring unfortunate news to Wii U owners. The recent patch implemented into the Wii U version of Freedom Planet has not fixed all the bugs present in the game. Because the game has been delayed on the Wii U eShop three times now, Stevie posted the following statement:
We received some sad news today: Our patch for the Wii U version of Freedom Planet didn’t fix all of the freezing issues. In light of this, we are cancelling our launch for the time being. We’re only going to announce a release date after the game is fixed and free of all issues not present in the PC version.
I understand that some fans out there were already upset at the last delay and that further delays would be the last straw, and to them I can only say that I’m sorry. I do not intend to deliver anything less than a 100% faithful and clean port, regardless of how long it takes.
If any of our new Wii U fans are interested in playing the PC/Mac/Linux version to tide them over, we’ll keep you updated on any sales or bundles we may be involved with in the future. We also have several extra announcements coming later this month including for our planned character DLC, so stay tuned.
We’re sorry again and thank you for your patience!
He understands the frustration Wii U fans have been going through for the past couple of weeks and I am glad he and Galaxy Trail are not announcing a new release date until the game is 100% ready to go.
Are you at this point going to purchase the PC version of Freedom Planet? or Do you plan to patiently wait for the Wii U release?
