Xbox Exclusive Replacement Delayed: ‘Too Risky to Release Untested Game’ -IGN
A recent announcement from Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming Xbox exclusive replacement game has been delayed. This announcement comes days after initially reports that the game was close to completion.
The delay was announced after Microsoft’s gaming division conducted a general assessment of the game’s completion and found that due to bugs and other issues, the game was too risky to release untested. The statement from Microsoft said that while the game was close to completion, they felt that delaying the launch was the best option for keeping a good relationship with customers.
The game, which was slated for release in the fall, now has no set release date as Microsoft has stated that more time is needed for development. The Xbox exclusive replacement has been in development for a few years and was meant to fill the gap after the release of the acclaimed triple-A title. However, due to a variety of reasons, the game is still currently in development and is looking to be pushed back even further.
With no set launch date in the immediate future, fans of the Xbox exclusive replacement will have to wait for further updates to know when they can expect the title to launch. Microsoft has promised to continue to update their customers when progress has been made.
The original game that was being replaced is expected to remain available on Xbox consoles for the foreseeable future, as Microsoft assures fans that the new game is still in the works.
