Image & Form has confirmed that SteamWorld Dig, is being delayed.
The game was originally on schedule for a release some time this spring, but it’s now being delayed for “a few months.” Image & Form thought development could be concluded by the end of February, which quickly became the end of March, and now they’ve made the decision to delay it even further:
“A common question people asked us was: “When can we get the full game?”. When we announced the game back in September we thought we’d be done by February, then we thought we’d be done by the end of March and now… spring 2015 is almost over. So what that means is that SteamWorld Heist is going to be delayed with a few months. But all the extra time we take will be visible in the final release.
So our new release window is “2015”. And it won’t be before fall this year. If you’re disappointed I do feel with you. But even worse would be you purchasing an incomplete game, right? We’d never let you experience that. And like I said above: With the extra time we will make SteamWorld Heist the best turn-based, skill-based strategy game with steampunk robots. In space.”
The game was shown off at both this year’s Game Developers Conference, as well as PAX East, and now Image & Form has shown off a new batch of screenshots (shown above and below).
It’s worth mentioning SteamWorld Heist is still coming to unconfirmed platforms, so for now – we’ll keep you guys posted.
