A “new issue” that will take time to resolve has caused the delay.
NIS America triggered several alarm bells when it revoked the PC demo for Disgaea 5: Complete. According to an update by the publisher on Steam, however, the full release has been delayed from May 7th to Summer 2018.
This was due to a “new issue” that was discovered during beta testing that would require more time to fix. As such, until the issue is fixed, the release date has been pushed back. NISA revealed that it was fixing other bugs and issues that were discovered. This particular issue seemed to be a lot more serious.
“Unfortunately, until this issue can be resolved, the release date will be postponed, and we are now targeting a release for Summer 2018. We offer our sincerest apologies to all who have been looking forward to this release of the game,” said the publisher.
Disgaea 5 is available for other platforms like the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch so it’s not like there aren’t options. Given NISA’s controversies when it comes to ports – the PC port of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana suffered numerous delays and still released with a number issues – the delay of Disgaea 5: Complete definitely doesn’t help. Stay tuned for more information on an a new release date in the coming weeks/months.
