The realistic single player role-playing game, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, being developed by the former Mafia developers, Warhorse Studios, has today been postponed once again.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance – powered by the incredibly CRYENGINE – was kickstarted back in February, 2014 for a huge £1,106,371 which continued to increase through the official website with contributors still offering their wallets to the highly anticipated game.

It was scheduled to release in the last quarter of 2015, however the game was pushed forward to this Summer on April 2. The beta version of the game was released to backers on March 3, 2016 but from a statement given to Polygon at the same time, it was confirmed that the game would be delayed on PC to ensure it would release alongside the current gen consoles.

Although an official Warhorse spokesperson confirmed that the game would not be confirmed this year on the forums. The announcement regarding the release date is expected to be mentioned during E3 or Gamescom and that a Community Manager said on April 17 that the release date won’t take too much longer to be released.

A first-person, open world, realistic RPG that will take you to Medieval Europe in a time of great upheaval and strife. A humble, young blacksmith loses everything to war. As he tries to fulfill the dying wish of his father, Fate drags him into the thick of a conspiracy to save a kidnapped king and stop a bloody conflict. You will wander the world, fighting as a knight, lurking in the shadows as a rogue, or using the bard’s charm to persuade people to your cause. You will dive deep into a sweeping, epic, nonlinear story from Daniel Vávra, an award-winning designer from the Mafia series. Our unique, first-person combat system lets you wield sword or bow in both one-on-one skirmishes and large-scale battles. All of this – and more – brought to life beautifully with next-gen visuals delivered via Cryengine.

I personally cannot wait for this game to come out, and I’ve been following it since the Kickstarter. But what do you think on the matter? Do you think that it’s a good thing if games are pushed back as it helps a lot more with developing the game? Perhaps it makes it even better, giving developers more time! Let us know down below what you think.
