Publisher Deep Silver and developer 1C Entertainment announced that King’s Bounty II has been postponed to August 24. Originally, the title would arrive in March. The announcement was made during the Epic Games Store Spring Showcase. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.
“As a team, we had to make the difficult decision to move the launch of King’s Bounty II to a later point in 2021 to ensure that the team had adequate time to offer the best possible King’s Bounty experience, ” said 1C Entertainment’s CEO, Nikolay Baryshnikov, in a press release.
King’s Bounty II producer Denis Maltzev added: “We are currently at a stage where the content is complete and playable, but we need more time to finish testing, tidying, and polishing. The revised release date will give us additional time for balancing, which is very necessary for such an important project, with its ambitious open-world, complex narrative, and deep turn-based tactics and RPG mechanics ”.
“Seeing the love and passion that you, our fans, put behind this project, we thank you for your support and ask for a little more patience. We hope this doesn’t seem like a long delay, and please keep an eye on our news channels for the latest updates as we approach the new release date. ”
