1C Entertainment and Koch Media have announced that King’s Bounty 2–the successor to the turn-based tactical RPG King’s Bounty– will be released on August 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This is a delay from the game’s original March 2021 release date, due to the developers deciding more time was needed to ensure the best experience for players.
“As a team, we had to make the difficult decision to move King’s Bounty 2’s release to a later point in 2021 to ensure the team has adequate time to deliver a King’s Bounty best possible experience,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, CEO of 1C Entertainment.
According to a producer on the team, the game is basically ready, but it needs a bit more time to get things just right. “We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing, polishing, and postponing launch will give us the precious months to balancing phase, much needed for such important project for us,” said King’s Bounty 2 producer Denis Maltzev.
“Seeing the love and passion you, as our fans, put behind this project, we are grateful for all your support and ask you for a little more patience with us. We’re hoping that this won’t be a long delay and please make sure to keep an eye on our channels to receive all upcoming updates on the game as we get closer to the new release date.”
