NetDevil has revealed new MMO Jumpgate: Evolution won't be launching next month as planned.
In a post on the Jumpgate forums company president Scott Brown wrote, "Jumpgate: Evolution is nearly feature complete, but since entering the Friends & Family phase of testing we’ve been able to bring new eyes onto the game and get solid, crucial feedback from actual players and fans. Based on these results, it is clear that the product needs more time to meet its objectives."
Elements that need polishing include the instanced and public PvP systems, according to Brown. "We would rather delay the release than let you down by releasing an unfinished product," he wrote. "We will continue development past June while extending the test schedules and respond to the results of those tests.
"We’ve always had one goal while developing this game which we’ve stated over and over. That goal is to make a great, and most of all fun, space combat game. Until we, and you, are happy that the game fully meets all of those requirements we won’t release it."
NetDevil hasn't revealed a new launch date and won't do for a while yet: "Once we've established our road map for the next few months we'll share with you when the revised release date is," Brown stated. "Thanks for your patience and continued support."
