2D steampunk hack-n-loot The Swindle was set to release on July 28th, but unfortunately Xbox One owners will have to wait just a little bit longer. Publisher Curve Digital confirmed via Twitter that the Xbox version has been delayed until August 7th.
In regards to the delay, publishing director of Curve Digital Simon Byron says “Nothing is more important to us that the quality of the final game – whilst the decision has been difficult, it’s the right one. The reaction we’ve been seeing to the game so far has been overwhelmingly positive, so whilst the next few days may drag for Xbox One owners, we’re absolutely confident The Swindle will be worth that wait. Again, please accept our apologies for this last minute change – we hope to confirm the new release date early next week.”
I have to agree that I’d rather wait for a finished product than relive the plethora of broken, rushed launches that plagued 2014. It’s only another week, right?
