Ubisoft has announced that The Settlers has been delayed indefinitely. According to the development team, the game needs more polish. And since Ubisoft wants to deliver an exceptional gaming experience, it has decided to delay it in order to meet its quality standards.
As The Settlers team stated:
“Since quality is our main priority, we want to take the time necessary to make it right. Therefore, we had to make the difficult decision to postpone the release of the game until further notice. The additional time will be used to address your feedback and deliver the best “The Settlers” game possible. While we cannot provide a new release date yet, rest assured we will keep you updated via The Settlers Alliance and our other channels as soon as we can give you further information.”
The Settlers promises to bring back the best, modernized elements from previous The Settlers titles. The game aims to combine these elements with brand new features and gameplay systems.
The Settlers will combine a fresh take on the familiar gameplay mechanics of the series with new features like a new food system and a motivational meta-game to create a unique game experience. Players will be able to play the campaign and optional side missions in solo or co-op modes.
The game will be using the Snowdrop Engine, and will also offer various online multiplayer modes. According to Ubisoft, the game will also have emotional storylines. Players will watch as thousands of settlers live their lives and complete their daily work.
