Focus Home Interactive has announced that Insurgency: Sandstorm, the sequel to the critically-acclaimed indie hit Insurgency, will now release for the PC on December 12th. According to the publisher, the extra time will allow developers New World Interactive to improve and polish their gem, and make Sandstorm a stand-out title in the modern FPS genre.
As the press release reads, over the past few months, the dedicated Insurgency: Sandstorm community have been enjoying the intense, unique action-packed gameplay and have provided valuable feedback en masse.
“While these beta tests confirmed the high quality of the core gameplay, the decision to delay the release is a direct response to technical feedback, and the desire to refine the game with more polished content and higher performance on PC. New community and online features will be available in the launch version, guaranteeing Insurgency will not only be a fantastic game, but also the true FPS experience fans are waiting for.”
