Amazon Games has delayed its upcoming MMO game New World by a month until September 28. The game was initially scheduled for August 31. The company says it wants to take extra time to process feedback on the closed beta.
Amazon’s New World delayed yet again for the fourth time
In the last few days, the last beta of New World, the new MMO RPG from Amazon Games, ended. The game perhaps represents the real important debut for the software house associated with the American e-commerce giant. But unfortunately the latest news are not the best.
Unfortunately, in fact, the development team has just announced that New World will be delayed. Fortunately, we are not talking about too broad delay. In fact, the new release date is set for September 28, just under a month from the original release scheduled for the end of August.
This isn’t the first delay for New World, which was postponed about a year ago after community feedback on the first alpha was mostly negative.
Totally different reactions, however, those received with the recently concluded beta, which was able to convince many players. We leave you below the post announcing the delay of the game, arrived from the official Twitter profile of the game:

We are humbled by the support New World received from players around the world throughout Closed Beta. During Beta, more than a million adventurers played more than 16 million total hours. Thanks to your support, New World became one of the most watched games on Twitch, and one of the most played games on Steam. The passion and enthusiasm you’ve shown for New World validates the work we’ve put in over the past year, improving the game based on your feedback.
Along the way, you’ve also given us a ton of feedback that we’ll use to make New World even better. We want New World’s launch to be a smooth and fun experience for all players, and that means making some improvements based on what you encountered during Closed Beta. So we’re going to take a few extra weeks to smash bugs, improve stability, and polish the game. New World’s new global launch date is September 28, 2021.
This was not an easy decision to make. We know this isn’t the first time we’ve changed our launch date in pursuit of quality, and that it can be disappointing to wait a bit longer. But we want to be sure we deliver you the highest quality game possible at launch. Thank you for your support and feedback. We’re listening. We’ll see you in Aeternum.
