Wizardry Online Launch Delayed
Bad news for all of you waiting the release of the Hardcore MMO Wizardry Online. SOE annouced that the title will not launch as programmed but it will be delayed until the end of the month.
WO Community Manager, Piestro stated on the game forums :“The transition from Beta to Live requires integrating with a good number of other systems. We are also planning to launch on Steam which complicates matters and requires other sorts of implementation work. Specifics aren’t necessarily meaningful to those who aren’t familiar with our internal systems, or particularly valuable. That being said we aren’t wasting this time, and are definitely looking to see what else we can accomplish. More news later this week I’m suspecting.”
Playing the Beta of the game myself i can say that the game was quite polished but it was lacking content. What do you think are the reasons of Wizardry Onlines delay? Does the pushback change your anticipation of the hardcore perma-death MMO?
