Two Point Hospital Coming to Consoles on February 25th 2020

Wednesday, December 11th, 2019

The console versions of Two Point Hospital have been delayed to a 25th of February 2020. Previously announced for a late 2019 release, Two Point Hospital is a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital originally released for PC back in August 2018. Now the game is heading to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch in February 2020:

These console ports will be available boxed and digitally and come packaged with 2 DLC expansions as standard. Two Point Hospital is the first development by the Two Point studio who feature ex-Bullfrog staff Mark Webley and Gary Carr among their staff.

Shenmue III Delayed to November 19th 2019

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

The much anticipated Shenmue III has suffered another delay. Fortunately the game is still planned to release this year, but it’ll now be launching November 19th, rather than August 26th as previously planned.

In a joint statement, Yu Suzuki’s company YS NET and publisher Deep Silver said that the game “needed more refinement before being truly finished.”

We’re all for delays in the name of improving a game’s quality, so here’s hoping this helps Shenmue III become the game that fans have been waiting for.

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Delayed to February 14th 2020, Citing Sonic’s Redesign

Friday, May 24th, 2019

Jeff Fowler, the Director of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie from Paramount, has taken to Twitter to announce that the film has been pushed back from its November/December 2019 release date. The film will now launch on February 14th 2020, with Fowler citing the previously confirmed redesign of Sonic as the cause.

For those who’ve been under a rock, the trailer for the Sonic movie debuted to widespread horror at Sonic’s design, leading Fowler to almost immediately state they’d change it. This then led to concerns that the VFX artists would be hit by major crunch trying to fix things for the 2019 release window.

As such, the film’s now been delayed. It’s a welcome move honestly – now we go back to awaiting out next look at Sonic with bated breath.

Team Sonic Racing Delayed, Now Releasing May 21st 2019

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

After much speculation given SEGA’s peculiar lack of marketing for the game, it’s now been officially confirmed that Team Sonic Racing won’t be releasing “this winter” after all – it’s now due for a much, much later release on May 21st, 2019.

SEGA has said that the delay is to ensure “the best experience possible”. Given response to game so far has been somewhat tepid, this is perhaps a welcome move – but it’s also a surprisingly hefty delay over the originally expected Winter 2018 release. Perhaps this is Haruki Satomi’s ‘quality-first’ initiative kicking into high gear?

Team Sonic Racing will launch in May on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 for Nintendo Switch Delayed to Fall – But Valkyria Chronicles 1 is Now Coming to Switch Too

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

As of the Valkyria Chronicles 4 panel at SEGA Fes, SEGA has unfortunately announced that the game’s Switch edition has been delayed to the Fall.

However, it’s not all bad! Presumably as some show of apology, SEGA has announced the original Valkyria Chronicles is now coming to Switch. Those who pre-order Valkyria Chronicles 4 on the Nintendo eShop can get the original game for only 540 yen in the Fall, which isn’t a bad deal! Valkyria Chronicles 1 will be Digital only on Switch.

Currently all this information is true of Japan, but we’ll let you know if SEGA’s Western branches comment on it.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life delayed to April 17th, Demo Announced

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been delayed in The Americas and Europe to April 17th, from its original release date of March 20th.

The delay was revealed in a tweet from the official Yakuza Twitter account, but there was some good news with the bad too – on February 27th, the game will be getting a PSN demo. Progress made in the demo will also be carried over to the full game, giving a great incentive to those who are already dead-set on buying the game regardless.

Delays are always a bit of a shame, but if it results in a better product at the end, there’s no qualms here – and SEGA have promised to fill the void with some fresh Yakuza content in the meantime, too. Roll on April 17th!

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Release Delayed Until 2016

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

In what has to be a first for the Sonic franchise, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be delayed until 2016 so the game can be improved and fine-polished. There is currently no exact release date in 2016 other than, “it’ll be ready when it’s ready”.

The Sonic franchise is not well known for delays and generally when a release date is set for a game then it gets delivered in whatever state it’s in at the time. This has resulted in some pretty lackluster efforts like Sonic the Hedgehog ’06 and even last year’s Sonic Boom games Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice was due to release on 3DS in quarter four this year and this delay marks one of the few occasions I feel a delay can really benefit a game. The Sonic franchise deserves more great entries and rush-releasing games has never been good practice for the blue blur. Fingers crossed Fire & Ice turns into a worthy entry in the franchise whenever it is that we next see it.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Delayed in the West Due to Localisation Issues

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Phantasy Star Online 2’s Western release has been delayed from its’ original “early 2013” status due to issues surrounding the localisation.

A SEGA representitive has been quoted with, “Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, Sega can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed. We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”

So that’s a bummer. The free-to-play PC version is available to play in Japanese but those hoping for an English-friendly version of the game (or an English version of the PS Vita release for that matter), they’re going to have to wait.

Rumours That Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii-U Has Been Cancelled “Not True”

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Eurogamer have reached out to SEGA for a comment regarding internet rumours that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been cancelled for Wii-U.

Their response? “It’s not true. We haven’t announced the release date for it yet but that’s it.”

Rumours began last night when Kotaku writer Jason Schreier left a comment saying, “We heard from a tipster about a month ago that the Wii U version had been ‘postponed indefinitely’. We reached out to Sega, and they denied it. I’ll let you guys fill in the blanks there. :)”

SEGA had previously announced that the game was due out in the “launch window” for the Wii-U which lasts up to March. Fingers crossed this is still the case.

NeoGAF users have also noticed that the game’s Amazon listing has also disappeared.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Delayed for Wii-U

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Aliens: Colonial Marines will not be making it to the Wii-U on February 12th.

SEGA have insisted that Aliens: Colonial Marines was never due for release on the Wii-U on February 12th. Eurogamer have quoted SEGA saying, “the Wii U version is due out in the Wii U launch window”. The Wii-U launch window runs up to March 2013.

SEGA have not released a hard release date for the Wii-U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines at this time. The Wii-U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is being developed by Demiurge Studios and not Gearbox Software.
