Unfortunately those of you wanting to get your hands on SteamWorld Heist for PS4 or PS Vita are going to have to wait a week more than you thought. June 7th for NA and June 8th for Europe, and Australia are the new release dates, and localisation and quality assurance are the reasons given. There were a few problems that need to be fixed before they release these versions.
While any delay is always a bummer, I think most of us would rather wait a week and get something without bugs or etc.
Check out the press release below with the Silver Lining, and excuse me as I go binge watch One Tree Hill until I can play SteamWorld Heist.
Howdy, everyone! We’ve got somewhat sad news to share with you today. But fear not, it’s not the end of the world!
SteamWorld Heist has been delayed on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita for roughly one week. The new target release dates are June 7th for North America and June 8th for Europe and Australia.
The reasons for the delay are related to publishing, localisation and quality assurance. We basically encountered a few scattered problems with the PlayStation versions that we have to fix before releasing the game. If you want more info, feel free to ask me directly. The extra week will hopefully give us enough time to fix these issues.
We’re working closely together with the fantastic people over at Sony to get the game out as fast as possible. Thanks for being patient with us!
The silver lining: AKA “reasons why the delay isn’t all that bad”
- You’ll get an even better version of SteamWorld Heist when it hits PlayStation. Lame excuse, I know, but it’s true!
- You have a few more days to clear your backlog and/or your clutter (I’m looking at you, messy wardrobe!).
- You’ll have another week to pre-order the game for a nice discount if you’re in Europe or Australia.
- You can finally get around to watching Game of Thrones, or another show you’ve been putting off watching for ages.
- You can practice speedrunning SteamWorld Dig. The current world record is 22 minutes and 57 seconds (crazy!). Think you can beat that?
