Weird West, the upcoming isometric immersive sim from ex-Arkane developers WolfEye Studios, is going to take a little longer than expected to release on the PlayStation 4. Originally due out in January, an open and honest Raphael Colantonio admits that it’s just not quite ready yet, and thus has been pushed to 31st March, 2022. “It’s almost there,” he promises.
“The game continues to be tested thoroughly and is also in a private beta right now: the feedback is fantastic but, as with the case of any immersive sim, there are a lot of variables that can lead to unintended consequences,” a press release continues. “The team wants to take some time to iron out those bugs, accidental dead ends, and other bothersome issues.”
That all seems fair enough to us. We’re sure this decision didn’t come lightly, but if it results in a better overall experience, then it’ll ultimately be for the best.
Probably a good idea. Aside from taking more time to develop, January-March are going to be absolutely packed with huge games many people have been waiting for. If they want this game to succeed, probably not a great idea to toss this into the mix.
Never mind this. Better than the alternative. Though they've now got to deal with a lot of BIG Feb releases that will still have legs.
Oh well... just wanna see how this game is gonna do.
This might be my most anticipated game right now. It sucks to have to wait a little longer, but as someone who waits for a patch or two to play most games, I’ll always welcome the extra polish.
Anytime anything is pushed back till March 31st I think it’s more of a fiscal year issue over technical issues
assuming the reviews don't uncover that it's a mess I'll be picking this up fairly quickly, the guy in the video looks like a dating coach
This game looks awesome. Reminds me of “Borderlands Legends” (remember that game?) and the look and style is very cool. Good thing they are taking the time to do it right.
@Victor_Meldrew that's the Founder of Arkane and creative director of most of their games. Maybe he heard about the Bethesda buyout and didn't like it, so they went independent. Put some respect on his name haha.
I seriously hope we get a PS5 release for this one 🤞 it looks great!
It's for the best in my opinion as it will now be after the absolutely stacked February. Now it can be planned as the next game after you finish your February game of choice, or after you're done with those games if you plan on playing multiple ones.
