Empire of Sin has been delayed until Autumn 2020

What? Those wise guys told us it'd come in spring!



Read more about Empire of Sin's delay.

Yeah, somebody must have released a memo to tell all the devs to delay.

The only big release that I can think of is DOOM Eternal, but it was delayed until Q1 2020...

Most suspicious.

It's always been like Top Trumps. IIRC Bioshock was delayed (or may have been BS2) because COD MW was coming out.

Funny thing is out of all of the tosh I'm looking forward to Doom the most, even though I've not finished the first reboot yet (which is my fault as it's an excellent game).

Typically when they do launch I will be busy with other things. I went home recently and thought "I wonder what that is under that piece of paper under the TV?" turned out it was RAGE 2 for the Xb1x, I'd forgotten I even bought it.

It's pretty difficult to gauge when a game will be ready to ship. Given how this has been true for the past decade and games are only increasing in complexity, the rise in frequency of delays isn't something we should be surprised about. Also given the launch of 2 new consoles, that's extra development time required to prepare that version of the game as well.

It'll only get worse until Studios start announcing games closer to when they are ready to launch unlike the prelaunch date given 1 year/6 months in advance. Like how Apex Legends launched the day it was announced. It became an instant hit(also being free and relatively small download size helped).
