Telltale Games' forthcoming Jurassic Park video game tie-in will now launch in the Autumn, rather than later this month as originally planned.

A statement from the publisher explained that it needed a little more time to add extra polish.

"Our goal was to release the first episode of Jurassic Park: The Game this month, and currently we are very excited about how the game's creation is progressing," wrote CEO Dan Connors.

"The game's mechanics and storytelling have come together in such a way that we see great potential, so much so that we feel we can push these elements to the next level if we spend some extra time working on them.

"It is because of this that we are delaying Jurassic Park: The Game on PC to ensure PC players get the best possible gaming experience.

"We'll be investing the extra time into making the game great and it will be released simultaneously on every platform this fall," he added. "We regret any disappointment on the part of our fans but we are confident you'll be pleased with our decision when the game comes out."

Telltale is refunding all pre-orders for the game and offering customers who had already stumped up the cash a free Telltale title of their choice as added compensation.

"We will begin issuing the refunds over the next couple of days and will reach out to you with information via email on how to get your free game," explained Connors.

Telltale certainly has a lot on its plate right now. As well as Jurassic Park, it also has Law & Order: Los Angeles, Puzzle Agent 2, The Walking Dead, Fables, Hector: Badge of Carnage and a new Kings Quest title at various stages of development.
