This 2021 does not really seem to spare the gaming world. In fact, a new game is added to the list of delayed titles: this time it is the turn of New World, an MMO in development at Amazon Game Studios.
According to an official statement by the developers themselves, in fact, New World will arrive on our screens only on August 31, 2021:
Last August we held a Preview Event with the goal of sharing our progress while collecting as much feedback as possible. We invited hundreds of thousands of players to experience New World. Your feedback and gameplay experiences validated our thoughts of what improvements and additions we needed to make. Since then we’ve polished the combat system, added quest variety, expanded weapon and armor variety, added fishing, expanded the map to include a new region Reekwater, overhauled our crafting system, and continued to add mid-game and end-game content.
We’ve been hard at work on compelling end-game features we believe are important to include at launch. These features won’t be ready for the Spring timeframe that we had communicated. With that in mind, we will release New World on August 31, 2021. With this extra time we’ll be able to add these substantial improvements while polishing and fine tuning the whole game before we open Aeternum’s shores to the world.
We’ll continue our Alpha in the months to come and expand testing by standing up EU servers on March 30, 2021. Our Closed Beta will begin on July 20, 2021. If you’ve pre-ordered New World, you’ll have access to the Closed Beta Test.

There seems to be no peace for the title of Amazon Games Studios, which after being postponed last year, is delayed again, this time to August. The release of the game now seems like an epic, and it is not certain that we will finally be able to play it later this year.
