This morning brings word that the upcoming base-management sim, Spacebase Startopia has been delayed out of this year…
One of my picks for most anticipated games coming this Fall, Spacebase Startopia, is no longer releasing this Fall. The developers announced the delay this morning:
Publisher Kalypso Media and developer Realmforge Studios have today announced that their upcoming space management sim Spacebase Startopia has been subject to a navigational glitch (that the station AI insists is down to human error), overshooting its destination by several thousand lightyears and delaying its arrival on Earth to Spring 2021.
The new release date will allow for more development time to further polish the game, ensuring that it reaches the highest quality level possible and meets the high expectations of fans and beta testers. In addition, the delay means that the game can launch in more territories and on more platforms from day one.
It’s always a bummer when a game is delayed, but normally the wait is worth it. Based on all I’ve seen so far of this game, I’m confident that will hold true here as well!
Spacebase Startopia is set to launch Spring 2021 on Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
