Wreckfest on PS4 and Xbox One has been delayed
The Destruction Derby style racer, Wreckfest, is already on PC, but those who want it on console could be waiting a while.
This is because developer Bugbear has said it needs more time to make Wreckfest better on PS4 and Xbox One, leading to the new, non-committal release date of '2019' instead of the 20th of November, 2018, as originally planned.
“Wreckfest for consoles will only be released as soon as we love playing it. After the fantastic release on PC, the benchmark for the console release is much higher," commented senior producer Roger Joswig at publisher THQ Nordic.
He continued: "At this moment, the team needs more time to polish the multiplayer part, as well as the overall performance on the game to bring it up to par with the experience on PC."
In an attempt to make the situation better for those affected by the delay, Joswig mentioned a reward: "We are sorry for keeping fans waiting longer because of this. However, we already have compensation in the form of further vehicles, including a special crazy vehicle, in the works for consoles."
Wreckfest has earned itself a decent score of 77 per cent on the Steam store, while we concluded that it is well worth a purchase, which makes the indefinite postponement a shame. But then it will be worth it if the end result is superior.
In our review, we said: "Wreckfest never set out to rewrite the rule book. It simply wants to amuse, entertain and excite with simple crash-based hooliganism and it does so with infectious enthusiasm."
