Media Molecule’s creative lead, Rex Crowle, recently posted in the company’s creative blog that a firm date of November 22, 2013 has been set for the game’s much anticipated North American release. Crowle’s primary reason for the push from the original mid-October time frame was to better fine-tune the game.
“We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realization that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game,” Crowle wrote, “To tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play. To give us that time, we’ve decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22.”
Crowle went on to apologize for the delay, and promised that the finished product will be worth the wait. It’s great to finally get a firm release date for such a promising game.
