We have some rather disappointing news now for those of you that have been waiting for Firefly Studios and SouthPeak Games’ much-anticipated real-time strategy title Stronghold 3 to be launched, as both the developer and the publisher have just announced that the game has now been delayed.
As James Orry over at videogamer.com recently reported, the castle building strategy game was scheduled to be released in the spring, but it won’t be arriving now until late summer. The reason for the launch date delay is so that the developer can add a whole host of new features to the Stronghold 3 game.
The game’s designer Sim Bradbury spoke out about the launch date delay, and said that they want to make sure that fans of the series get the title that they want and deserve. Simon went on to say that although gamers will be disappointed in the delay, they won’t be disappointed with the new features.
Stronghold 3 — which actually works out as the sixth game in the series after several spin-offs and an MMORTS — promises a stunning graphics engine, improved multiplayer gameplay and cutting edge physics, as well as night time battles and a new weather system.
Are you disappointed that the Stronghold 3 game has been delayed until the summer?
