Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires will be released later than expected. It was delayed to an indefinite point in time.
The publisher Koei Tecmo and the developer Omega Force have released a new release update for Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires. After the companies previously assumed that the title could be launched on the market in early 2021, this restriction has now been lifted.
The game will therefore be brought onto the market in a previously unknown period, which amounts to a postponement. The game will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
“Although DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires was initially announced as an Early 2021 release, the team is still working hard on delivering the best game possible so we wanted to let our fans know the current situation and will announce the new launch window in future updates,” the makers in today’s announcement declared.
“We apologize for the delay and appreciate your continued support. In the meantime, check out this first look at a scene from our opening movie. Just a taste of what’s to come as we get closer to finishing the game,” the developers further stated.
In the course of the announcement, the Dynasty Warriors series producer Akihiro Suzuki announced that the title would not inherit the open-world system of its predecessor. Instead, you can expect a natural evolution of the Empires series that aims to harness the resources of the title to create battles with a sense of size.
