Police Simulator 18 Delayed Again

Police Simulator 18 is now expected for release this summer announces astragon Entertainment. This marks back-to-back setbacks for the law enforcement sim, as during the summer they announced this was coming in January, rather than during 2017 as originally planned. You can follow this project on Steam, though they currently still list this as due in the spring. No need to call 911, here's the 411:

Fans of gripping police simulation games will need a little bit more patience before they can go on patrol in the fictional US city of Loston Bay: In order to meet the wishes of their very active and enthusiastic community developer Bigmoon Entertainment and publisher astragon Entertainment have decided to postpone the release of POLICE SIMULATOR 18 on PC to summer 2018.

“Through our close communication with the members of our player community we have received a tremendous amount of constructive feedback regarding the development of POLICE SIMULATOR 18 from police fans all over the world. We are of course striving to implement as many of these elements as possible, so that we will be able to offer players a police simulation that fully matches their expectations. We have therefore come to the conclusion that it will be beneficial to extend the development period by a few more months and postpone the release of our game to summer 2018,” explains Benjamin Wolf, producer at astragon Entertainment, the publisher’s decision.

Wow, the anti-cop sentiment from you people is astounding. It kinda makes me hope your car gets stolen or you get assaulted. Lets see if you have the same attitude with the cops then.

That's a very naive attitude to take about it. Hoping someone gets assaulted just because they express an opinion, mostly in jest? Are we on Youtube? Why not break out the 'N' word and some f-bombs while you're at it! So, what happens when you've been assaulted by the cops? Is that a bonus?

This is the same tired shit every cop apologist who has never had to deal with the cops starts with.

Yeah, if my car gets stolen they'll find it weeks later in 50 pieces. If they find it at all. So useful. And if I get assaulted and call the cops, other person will claim I started it and we'll both get arrested until we both agree not to press charges to clear the whole mess up. And that's assuming it isn't just some random shithead who they'll never find in the first place.

And nevermind the fact that they are useless for protecting you in the first place. If you have an emergency situation the most they are gonna do is show up 15 minutes after you're dead, take notes, and make sure your body gets carted away in a timely manner. I'm sure I'll be grateful from my resting place in hell.

I've never been convicted of any crimes, or involved in any criminal shenanigans, and still every interaction I've had with cops has been a pain in the ass. Sitting there being polite as possible to some ego flexing asshole just so he won't charge me with contempt of cop or resisting verbal abuse. And not once have the cops ever done anything to actually help me.

My first interaction with the cops (that I can remember) was getting swatted as a teenager. We didn't call it swatting then, and my town didn't have a SWAT team, This was pre-widespread-militarization. But a bunch of cops surrounded my house and harassed me and my parents and tore our house apart looking for weapons, all because of some idiot making a phone call. I wasn't even the target, moron gave them the wrong address for whoever he was trying to fuck with.

EDIT: To be clear, it's probably easier to say what I think cops are good for, rather than all the stuff they are bad at. I think the main point of having a police force is as a deterrent, and to keep people generally hesistant to form mobs to seek their own justice. Even if they are incompetent and do a bad job of that, the illusion of justice is still worth something as a security blanket for people.

Also federal law enforcement does a fairly good job with white collar criminals, though the courts fall on their face, usually.

Does it still count when you get assaulted by a K9 unit because the cop mistook a banana for a gun?

If I cannot violently shove someone into another police officer and sue them for assault and resisting arrest then this game isn't nearly realistic enough.

They are adding an IQ test to the installer. If the player has an IQ above 80, the game won't install. Realistic hiring qualifications.

No way I'm in on this unless I can go on an old fashion hippy whomping! Nothing beats beating the crap out of a hippy and denying people due process and their civil rights!

If the trailer is any indicator, this game needs to be delayed indefinitely. Just play SWAT 4.

"MOAR MINORITIES TO BEAT AND SHOOT!"
"How about a sort of 'get off scot free' card where we can kill innocent civilians and not have to face jail time or penalties?"
"Can we get military gear? Nothing says 'effective traffic stop' like rolling up in anti-riot tank and armed with AR-15s!"
