Ambitious 'dungeons and no dragons' role-playing game Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been delayed to 2018. It's official release date is 13th February 2018 - on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The reason the press release gave for the delay was "in order to secure the best quality for the future gamers and community of Kingdom Come: Deliverance".
A story trailer has been released to mark the occasion.
As an open, sandbox RPG set in a visually impressive and historically accurate medieval Bohemia, Kingdom Come: Deliverance of course faces a lot of challenges. This is a world where more than 1000 AI characters have simulated daily lives, a world with complicated physics-based swordplay, and a world with more equipment slots and layered armour than I've ever seen in a game before.
Czech developer Warhorse has had to come a long way from Kickstarting the game in January 2014. Adding consoles to the mix has no doubt taken a toll as well.
Deep Silver was announced as co-publisher of Kingdom Come last autumn. Warhorse will distribute the game on PC but needs help getting the console games out.
