Tropico 6 moves to next year, looks a lot like a Tropico game

Sure, sure, Tropico games are about as indistinguishable from each other as the founding staff of a PC games website circa 2007, but I can forgive that. There's just something about their sun-kissed, low-stakes, silly-but-not-too-silly take on city-building. Every couple of years I really feel the itch to comfort-blanket myself with one, and lo and behold, every couple of years there's a new one. That…

Sunless Skies adds new region, extends early access voyage

Why rush to lose your mind in the depths of space when strange aeons barely notice your passing? With that old adage in mind, Failbetter Games have announced plans to keep Sunless Skies in early access a few months longer, now planning to launch the 'experience cosmic horror in space then eat your crew' follow-up to their 'experience cosmic horror on the seas then eat…

Retro FPS Ion Maiden slips into 2019, adds multiplayer

Authentically old-school FPS Ion Maiden will feel just that little bit more retro when it arrives, as it's slipped to launching in "early 2019" according to developers Voidpoint and publisher 3D Realms. On the plus side, the game will now include multiplayer at launch. The Build-based spinoff from 3D Realms's ill-fated Bombshell impressed both myself and John when it bombed its way into early access…

Fear The Wolves slinks away with last-minute delay

Your stag & hen weekend tour of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone will have to wait, as Fear The Wolves isn't ready yet. The battle royale FPS from Survarium devs (and virtuaChernobyl veterans) Vostok Games was due to launch today but Vostok and publishers Focus Home Interactive announced only last night that the game needs more time. Sounds like testers have grumbled about too many technical…

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries delayed until 2019

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and BattleTech launching in the same year was obviously just too much mech for this world. The latter came out in April, giving us control over a bunch of planet-hopping mercs, but its first-person cousin, originally slated for December this year, is now stomp stomp stomping its way into 2019.

Don’t Starve: Hamlet snuffling into December

You summer holiday to a tropical city populated by aristocratic ambulant ham, I'm sorry to say, must become a winter vacation. Don't Starve developers Klei Entertainment this week announced that they have delayed the launch of its Hamlet expansion from June to December 2018, saying "we're not quite where we want Hamlet to be yet." Which is fair enough: better late than rubbo. In the…

Bang to rights: Crackdown 3 officially delayed into 2019

Another year, another delay for super-powered futurecop sandbox Crackdown 3. Following rumours, publishers Microsoft have confirmed that it's now due to arrive in February 2019. Better a good game later than a wonky one now, yeah? Though I wouldn't start getting excited for February just yet, given how many times the game has been delayed. It was originally slated to launch in 2016, then it…

Total War: Three Kingdoms delayed into spring 2019

Bad news: the launch of Total War: Three Kingdoms will come in spring 2019, pushed back from autumn 2018. Good news: a new trailer has a selection of moving shapes, colours, and sounds that you might find comforting. The Creative Assembly's first foray into Chinese history for their strategy series needs a little more time to finish up properly, see. Better a better game later…

Ace VR stealth ’em up Budget Cuts budged back again

I had a little VR party on the day I got my Vive, and my guests all regarded the Budget Cuts demo as the highlight. That's partly because it felt slick and stylish in a way that hasn't been matched by anything I've tried since, but mostly because watching VR newbies fail to sneak past robots is the most fun you can have with a…

The Wolf Among Us 2 will not be among us until 2019

Like a lot of Telltale stuff, I got really excited for The Wolf Among Us because I adored Bill Willingham's Vertigo comic book series. I played the first episode of season one and was like "Hell yeah, check out that hot wolfdadbod. Rawr!" And then I failed to see it through for way too long. Never fear, dear reader, for I finally finished season one…

Ubisoft delay pirate ’em up Skull & Bones

Ubisoft's salty multiplayer shipfighter Skull & Bones will not launch this autumn, as had been the plan, because Ubisoft have delayed it for a fair while. They want extra time to make sure it's proper good, yeah? Wouldn't want to launch a ship then have the front fall off or, like Sea Of Thieves, realise the front was never even there. Ubi now expect to…

Shenmue III won’t be released in 2018, but you knew that already

You've been waiting 17 years for Shenmue III - what's one more year between friends? Sure, a delay until until 2019 makes the time between the wildly successful Kickstarter for Yu Suzuki's white whale and its eventual reality jump to four years, but I think we all knew this was inevitable.

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor delayed into June

You have a little extra time to polish your crotchskull up nice and shiny, as NeocoreGames have announced that Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr will not make its planned May 11th launch and will instead arrive on June 5th. The 40K action-RPG from the studio behind the Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing games is being held up on PC by problems with the console versions…

Ys VIII’s troubled PC port staggers into the limelight

They say good things come to those who wait, but perhaps the release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana could have gone back into the oven a little bit longer. The six-month-delayed PC port (first to completely re-translate the game, then to deal with a rising tide of technical issues) has finally made it to launch, though after looking at the first wave of public…

Below is absolutely real despite what you may believe

The video game Below is absolutely going to happen. I know you can't read my tone here but I am using my most Serious Voice. It's probably coming out now. It may already be out. Who knows? Maybe we've already played it together and had a wonderful time. Do you remember that night? We all shared secrets and ate crisps. I had too many beers…

A Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia delayed into May

If you've already ordered in a hog to roast in celebration of A Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia's launch, you might want to get your meat man on the blower. Developers Creative Assembly today announced that they will not launch the historical strategy game on April 19th, as had been the plan, as they want more time to polish it up. Thrones Of Britannia…

That’s aaaages: Pillars Of Eternity 2 delayed into May

Obsidian's throwback RPG sequel Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire was due to launch in a few weeks, on April 3rd, but now it will not. The developers announced today that they're pushing the launch back to May 8th, as testing feedback has indicated the game's not quite ready yet so they want to polish it up. Which, yeah, sure, great. If you can afford to…

EA delay BioWare’s Anthem to 2019, say it’s not a delay

As rumours predicted, Electronic Arts have delayed BioWare's sci-fi online shooter doodad Anthem into 2019. It was previously slated for autumn of this year. Anthem is BioWare's shiny new persistent-world multiplayer shooter which... given how little they've shown and said about it, let's say it resembles Destiny but with Iron Man armour and more spacejungle. Despite the delay, EA say Anthem is not delayed. It's…

Rumour: BioWare’s Anthem delayed into 2019

While BioWare's new sci-fi persistent open-world multiplayer shooter doodad Anthem is officially due to launch this autumn, several secret sources tell Kotaku that the game is now likely delayed into early 2019. Speaking anonymously (the industry is not remotely fond of leakers, after all), they say that BioWare are shifting almost everyone to focus on Anthem, and... there are more whispers about the game's progress,…

Ys VIII delayed on PC again to fix performance problems

For a second time, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana has been delayed mere days before it was due to launch on PC. Nihon Falcom's JRPG had been due in September 2017 but was delayed one day before launch, and this new delay comes eleven days before the latest launch date. This time, publishers NIS America are being quite open: it's delayed again because the game…
