Just Myst It: Obduction Delayed Into August

You may well chortle at John’s Myst ranting but it’s no joke to those of us around him. Talking about Myst sends John into a blood rage and even seeing those four little letters can be enough – I once saw him bite clean through a steel-cased DVD box set of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. But shh, John’s done for the day so I think I’m safe to post this as long as you don’t make any loud noises or sudden movements. Let’s go.

Myst makers Cyan have announced another delay for Obduction [official site], their shiny all-new adventure game.

The Creative Assembly’s Halo Wars 2 Due In Feb 2017

Total War developers The Creative Assembly have stuck their thumb into Microsoft’s gamepie and pulled out a technoplum, by which I of course mean that they’re making Halo Wars 2 [official site] for Windows 10. Halo Wars is a real-time strategy spin-off from the Xbox’s flagship FPS, with the first one released on Xbox 360 in 2009. Well, now this sequel has a release date: February 21st, 2017. That’s a bit later than autumn 2016 date mentioned before. Still, it’ll cheer you up, I can show you moving pictures:

Retroh No! Yooka-Laylee Delayed Into 2017

Yooka-Laylee [official site] raised over £2 million on Kickstarter in 2015 for the dream of a new ’90s-style 3D platformer made by a team including folks who worked on Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country. Playtonic Games hoped at the time that they’d release the game in October 2016, but the makers today announced it’ll be a little late. A new trailer reveals the game’s due in early 2017 but hey, the trailer also shows more of the game in motion. If you’ve waited a decade for the nineties to return, what difference does a few more months make?

Countdown Delayed: No Man’s Sky Delayed Into August

Offblast!

I don’t know where or how he heard it, but Ian Video Games was right: No Man’s Sky [official site] has been delayed. The space sandbox had been lined up to blast off on June 21st, but developers Hello Games last night confirmed that it won’t make that. So they can polish it up proper nice, they’ve delayed it into August.

Rumour: No Man’s Sky Delayed

BLAST OFF!

“Psst. Psst!” Oh lord, here is again, Ian Video Games come to disturb your quiet afternoon pint. He shoots you a wink and sidles up. “No Man’s Sky?” he asks, leaning in to tapping his nose conspiratorially. “NOT Man’s Sky more like! Wait… NO Man’s Sky more like! Wait. I mean… NONE Man’s Sky? LATER Man’s Sky! If you catch my drift.”

The latest juicy rumour whirling around is that No Man’s Sky [official site], the gorgeous procedural sandbox universe from Hello Games, has been delayed. It was due in June but now… sorry, Ian’s just jabbed himself in the eye doing all that nose-tapping. I’ll fetch the first aid kit then get back to you in a sec.

Shadowrun Devs Delay Co-op Roguelikelike Necropolis

Shadowrun Returns gang Harebrained Schemes will not, as previously announced, release their stylish roguelikelike Necropolis [official site] in March. No, if you want to go hacking through dungeons with your chums, you’ll need to wait until summer. In short, Harebrained have landed a publisher to release Necropolis on consoles too and say they needed to launch straight into working on that, so the PC version wouldn’t get the attention it deserves if they stuck to March. Sure, I’ll happily wait for this one.

The Ship: Remasted Delayed To Add Online Multiplayer

Oh, it’s breaking my heart. I can see you right now, by your screen with your steamer trunk packed and your little sailor hat atop your little head, waiting patiently for The Ship: Remasted [official site] to launch into Early Access. It should’ve been here at 2pm, shouldn’t it? Reader dear, I’m sorry but you’ll have to wait another week.

Developers Blazing Griffin have decided that launching the assassination FPS remake without online multiplayer would be silly, see. I entirely agree. I’m surprised they’d even considered it. The curse of The Ship can drive a man to do strange things…
