Won’t launch until “it’s ready”
One day we’ll get the spelling of ANNO: Mutationem correct on our first go. Hopefully in time for the PlayStation 5 version at least, now confirmed to be a thing by developer Thinking Stars. It’ll arrive alongside the last-gen editions in the third quarter of 2021, which represents a delay for the team using Sony’s China Hero Project scheme to its full advantage. Lightning Games, publisher of ANNO: Mutationem, posted the news to its Twitter account, stating an upgrade to the overall experience as the reason why.
“This is a very difficult decision, as we all love the game and cannot wait to get our players’ hands on it, but we don’t want to release the game until we feel it’s ready, we plan to upgrade the overall experience of the game, which means that a large amount of game content must be re-planned and polished. At the same time we will continue to optimize for next-gen.”
We apologize for having to postpone the release date of ANNO: Mutationem to the third quarter of 2021.
New goals have been set and we are working hard towards the release!
Thanks again for joining us on this awesome journey, we wish everyone a Happy & Healthy new year! pic.twitter.com/USbHaOLmxh
