Despite an announced July 14th release, Cryptic has today revealed yet another delay for their superhero MMORPG:
We wanted our fans to hear this from us first… We’re changing our Champions Online launch date from July 14th to September 1st of this year.
Why? Here’s what our own Bill Roper, Design Director and Executive Producer on Champions Online, had to say about it:
“It is critically important for an MMO to be as good as it possibly can be at launch. Through our constant dialogue with our vocal and supportive community of beta testers, we quickly realized that in order to implement certain features that we all considered important the development of Champions Online would require more time. So that’s what we’re going to give it. Cryptic has a proven track record of releasing solid games and we want to maintain that with Champions Online.”
What does this mean for you? Simply, more beta play time right now and a better, more polished game at launch.
