Wreckfest Console Release Delayed Until Next Year

By Andy Mills, 3 months ago
For those on PC, Wreckfest has been available since June, with those of us on console ready to take the wheel this November. Unfortunately, Finnish developer Bugbear Entertainment has announced that we'll have to wait just a little while longer as the game has been delayed. With what they're calling an "anti-BS" statement, Roger Joswig, Senior Producer at publisher THQ Nordic, provided the reason for the delay, citing that the team needs time to polish the game's multiplayer and improve performance on the whole.

Wreckfest for consoles will only be released as soon as we love playing it. After the fantastic release on PC, the benchmark for the console release is much higher. At this moment, the team needs more time to polish the multiplayer part, as well as the overall performance on the game to bring it up to par with the experience on PC. We are sorry for keeping fans waiting longer because of this. However, we already have compensation in the form of further vehicles, including a special crazy vehicle, in the works for consoles.

It's unfortunate, but at least we know that Wreckfest should be at its best when it releases on consoles in 2019.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Wreckfest achievements.
