Amazon Game Studios’ New World has been delayed. Instead of releasing on August 31st for PC, it’s now slated for September 28th. The game’s official Twitter notes the feedback received from the recent closed beta and how it will be used to make the experience “even better.”

“We want New World’s launch to be a smooth and fun experience for all players, and that means some improvements based on what you encountered during closed beta.” The next few weeks will be used to quash any bugs, improve stability and provide more polish. Though this isn’t the first time the title has been delayed – which the development team acknowledges – it wants to deliver the “highest quality game possible at launch.”

New World had proven fairly popular during its closed beta, crossing 200,000 concurrent players at launch. However, there were complaints of various bugs, not to mention issues with the combat that still need to be sorted out. Whether all of this can be addressed in the coming weeks remains to be seen so stay tuned.

Announced in September 2016, New World is an MMORPG set on the fictitious island of Aeternum which players end up ship-wrecked on. There are three factions to join – Marauders, Syndicate and Covenant, each vying for control of various territories (which players can subsequently wage war over). Along the way, more details on the island and the civilization that resided on it, known as The Ancients, will be revealed.
