Skateboarding Game Session Delayed on Xbox One

By Sean Carey,
The new skateboarding game Session was due to enter the Xbox Game Preview Program this month, unfortunately, developer Crea-ature studios has had to delay Session's release date to late November/ Early December.

The independent developer announced the delay via a facebook post:

"Unfortunately, at this point, we need still need more time to port Session to Xbox One. That being said, we must postpone the Xbox One version release date to late November/early December.

"We know this sucks and we totally understand as we know you have been waiting to play the game on console for a while now. We know it’s not great news to hear, but it’s not particularly fun to announce either, especially for a small studio like ours.

"It is never easy to make such decisions as we know it can have an impact on several levels, so these decisions are never taken lightly. We thank you for your understanding and hope you will stick around for the Xbox One release!"
Session is an open-ended skateboarding game that has been dubbed a spiritual successor to the Skate series. It features a new control twin-stick control system that maps each analogue stick to an avatar's feet. Session focuses on realism and allows players to find their own lines to pull off tricks and combos.

    I can't see why Skate 4 is a dream. Make the game, fill it with cosmetic MTAs and let the gamers enjoy it with or without the MTAs purchased. Both sides win that way, right? headspin

    If we're talking skating games we want...

    Give me Tony Hawk's Underground 1 and 2 remaster please!

    American Wasteland wouldn't be bad either... rock

    I'd rather they delayed the game and made it better than released a pile of dung. Hopefully this is a solid title.

    Even me, who is an optimist about most things gaming, realized almost anything EA touches gets fucked. They purposefully released Titanfall 2 in a shit time to get full control of Respawn, their sports titles are getting worse and worse reviews and are getting lazier at adding new well-made content, Star Wars Battlefront's reputation got horribly messed with, they dropped the ball with all things Mass Effect and BioWare.

    I forgive one, two, three mistakes: the sheer amount of times they've completely taken advantage of our trust as consumers is outrageous. I hope Skate 4 doesn't ever release, it's reputation deserves better.

    Been playing since it hit early access on Steam, and IMO, this will be better than Skate in the long run (and this is from someone who has put in way over 1000 hours across the three games).
    But also word of warning, if it's the same build as PC it is still pretty rough around the edges, but it has such a huge amount of potential once the kinks are ironed out.
    Other word of warning is that it is not for the faint hearted! If you thought Skate was a sim game, Session takes it to whole a new level.

    Exactly my thoughts. I checked it out on Steam and boy is it in rough shape. I'm not surprised this has been delayed. And those controls! Man, they take a while to master laugh but once you get it right, actually pulling off a trick feels rewarding.
