Amazon MMO New World Delayed…Again

Amazon has announced that the highly anticipated MMO will be delayed to Spring 2021.

After feedback from the alpha, the developers have made the decision to delay the game. However, the initial beta will still be available on August 25th for people who already pre-purchased or are in the beta program. The initial beta will be only for a limited time.

This decision follows shortly after Crucible was yanked from the steam store and put back into a closed beta state due to underwhelming reviews. Amazon probably wants to avoid another flop like this. It would be really bad publicity to release 2 bad games back to back.

While this delay may be disappointing to some, I think we can agree that releasing a half baked game would be more detrimental. Lets hope they can polish it up to an amazing immersive experience!
