The second expansion for SpellForce 2 called Faith in Destiny has been postponed, but not for the usual reasons. No extra time for polish required this time, it’s becuase another certain game is being released on 15 May.
Not many developers have admitted that the release of Diablo 3 will have an impact on sales of their games should they release around th same time so it’s refreshing to see Nordic Games being up front. Philipp Brock, Marketing & PR at Nordic Games had this to say on the SpellForce 2 expansion delay.
“As many already know, hell breaks loose on 15th of May 2012 and may possibly cause a global decrease in productivity, “sick leaves”, and consumption of vacation days. We think that this is a very unfavourable time for the release of SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny and have therefore decided to postpone it. Due to lowered resistance values, even we here at Nordic Games are not immune to said phenomenon and expect anomalies with regards to working hours of our colleagues and employees”.
The gamne has been pushed back instead of being brought forwards due to Nordic’s “internal schedule” so now you can expec the expansion to release on 19 June.
