Ubisoft has decided to delay the launch of The Settlers reboot.
The new version of the classic strategy game was expected to go on sale on March 17, but the French company cleared those plans after evaluating feedback received during the last closed beta.
In a communication published in Twitter explains that “it has been clear to our team that the quality has still not been in line with its vision”. We don’t know what the new date will be, except that it will come “further”.
The extra time will be spent on “improving the game and improving its quality, as our top priority for all of our players”.
Without an embargo, it’s a bad signal for a project which has already suffered other setbacks and which does not seem to live up to its expectations. The settlers announced 2018 with a forecast for 2019, but when that date approached it was pushed back to 2020. In the summer of 2020 it backtracked, this time indefinitely, and in January it should arrive the 17th of March. This, again, is not going to materialize, and many users are already wondering if the game will eventually be able to reach the expected quality.
