Playtonic has announced the sad news that their Kickstarter game Yooka-Laylee has been delayed until 2017.
Yooka-Laylee is set to revive the old school 3D platformer genre, as fans have been waiting patiently for its release. Gavin Pearce the Managing director of Playtonic had the following to say about the delay:
“We’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017. While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally planned, the team has decided that it would like to add a few extra months’ polish to our schedule.Ultimately, this will allow us to release a better game to the thousands of fans who’ve supported us throughout development.”
Along with the news of the delay, Playtonic also released a new trailer for the game.
