So many mixed feelings…
Playtonic’s Yooka-Laylee, their excellent seeming throwback to the N64 era of 3D platformers, got its very first trailer today, showcasing the game ahead of its E3 reveal. And while the game looks absolutely awesome, the trailer did come with some bad news- the game, which was due out later this year, will now be launching in 2017.
“After a lot of soul searching and knowing through dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017,” said Playtonic MD Gavin Price.
“While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally planned, the team has decided that it would like to add a few extra months’ polish to our schedule. Ultimately, this will allow us to release a better game to the thousands of fans who’ve supported us throughout development.
“We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few extra months’ wait, however the Playtonic team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when the game arrives early next year.”
