In a post on the official forums, Jumpgate developer Scott Brown has announced that the launch date for Jumpgate Evolution has been delayed.
As a result of testing by friends and family, the developers have decided to push back the release date, which was set to be next month, until they feel the game meets its expectations.
“Nowadays, Massively Multiplayer Online Games have a highly competitive market and a less-than-stellar release can be the end of a title before it starts. Our passion for this game means we want to release it in a state that is complete.” Brown continued, “We’ve always had one goal while developing this game which we’ve stated over and over. That goal is to make a great, and most of all fun, space combat game. Until we, and you, are happy that the game fully meets all of those requirements we won’t release it.”
Brown specifically mentioned the instanced and public PvP systems, stating that the feedback they received from testing has meant they can improve that area of the game. He went on to say that Codemasters will announce the revised release date once a road map for the next few months has been established.
