Century Age of Ashes PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Free-to-play dragon combat game Century: Age of Ashes was set to release tomorrow on the PS5 and PS4 – but has now been delayed. In an eyebrow raising statement, Bordeaux-based developer Playwing admitted that it simply needs more time, and assured that bringing the game to PlayStation is its top priority. It didn’t, however, issue an alternative date.

“First, please accept our humble apologies,” a statement said. “Pushing back a release is never pleasant, even more so when we know there is a huge number of players who are wanting to play on PlayStation platforms, and this will most likely be a turning point in the life of Century: Age of Ashes. Passing certification on PlayStation – what we call 'going gold' – right off the back of the Xbox One release and the launch of the debut season, A Shadow Over Skeld, is a tough challenge. Therefore, we are going to need a little more time to ensure we meet the quality standards to ship on these two platforms.”

Fair enough, so when can we expect to mount our dragons? “Our team are currently hard at work debugging the PS5 and PS4 versions, while also polishing up the recently released Xbox One version. Season 1 is also being worked on for its balancing issues and prepping for future content. This is now the last stretch before Century takes flight on PlayStation, which means it's just a matter of days before we share a release date with you all.”
