Metal Gear Survive delayed into 2018

The still-surprising Metal Gear Solid V spin-off Metal Gear Survive [official site], where Snake’s MSF pals are sucked through a portal to a world crawling with zombies, has been delayed. Konami confirmed during E3 that it won’t make its planned 2017 launch, being pushed back a few months so they can work on it more. They want it to be good, y’see. It’s now expected in early 2018.

Techland delay Pure Farming 17 long enough to become Pure Farming 2018

Pure Farmind 2018

Pure Farming 17 has been delayed for so long that it’s now got a new name: Pure Farming 2018 [official site]. Publishers Techland (the same gang who made Dead Island and published Torment: Tides of Numenera) say it will arrive early next year, not this year as expected, because they’re keen “to make it as good as it needs to be”.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown delayed into 2018

Needs a little more work.

The arcadey aeroplane action of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown [official site] has been delayed, publishers Bandai Namco announced today. It was due towards the end of this year but is now pushed into 2018. Ace Combat hasn’t been on PC much and its last visit, in 2011’s Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, was a bit bum. But Skies Unknown is returning to the ‘Strangereal’ alternate history and has brought back the writer of AC 4 & 5, sidestepping the whole mess of Assault Horizon. Read the rest of this entry »

Shambling: Overkill’s The Walking Dead delayed again

Co-op brain-busting FPS Overkill’s The Walking Dead [official site] is now due in the second half of 2018, following yet another delay. It was previously due some time in 2017, and 2016 before that. Made by Payday developers Overkill Software, the game’s still a bit of a mystery, beyond being a co-op zombie-killing FPS with L4D-sounding dynamic levels and new characters and stories in the world of Robert Kirkman’s zombie comics. Given how vague everything we know is, a delay is little surprise. Read the rest of this entry »

Resident Evil 7’s free story DLC delayed

The free Resident Evil 7 [official site] story DLC ‘Not A Hero’ is delayed, Capcom have announced. The end of RE7 teased that Not A Hero would arrive in spring 2017, but now it won’t. Capcom say it wasn’t shaping up as good as the rest of the (great) game but they want it to be, so they’ll work on it a while longer. No firm word yet on when it will arrive. For the benefit of folks who’ve not yet played RE7, I’ll not say much about Not A Hero before the cut. Speaking of… Read the rest of this entry »
