Stronghold 3 release pushed back

PC strategy sequel catapults into Summer.

PC strategy sequel Stronghold 3 has been pushed back until the Summer, publisher Southpeak Interactive has announced.

It had been scheduled to land in the Spring but developer Firefly apparently needs more time to polish the game and add a few new features.

"We want to make sure fans get the game they want and deserve," explained designer Simon Bradbury.

"Although some may be disappointed the game isn't coming out as soon as they expected, we're sure they won't be disappointed with the new elements we're adding to the franchise, to make this the best Stronghold yet."

Its predecessor stormed PCs back in 2005, battling its way to a solid 7/10 from Eurogamer's Kieron Gillen.
