Steel Division 2 Delayed Again

Eugen Systems announces a delay to the launch of Steel Division 2, saying the RTS sequel is now expected on June 20th, and for preorder customers, on June 18th. The game originally carried an April 4th release date, which was then delayed until May 2nd. Word is: "The decision to delay the Steel Division 2 launch will afford the development team additional time to focus on improving the Army General mode." This is why they also announce a new third beta testing phase is now underway:

One last delay for the game release
First things first, we need to delay one last time the release of Steel Division 2. The definitive release date will be on June 20th for the Standard Edition & on June 18th for the Digital Deluxe Editions.

We would like to apologize for this new delay, and we would like to explain why we made this decision:

Army General, the single player campaign mode, is an entire new game within the game and it wouldn't be polished enough to be released on May 2nd. This new game mode has evolved a lot during development and is now becoming a compelling and interesting solo experience. We will release a dev diary and a video soon to explain how this 1:1-scale turn-based strategic game mode will be played in the release version.

The tactical part of Steel Division 2, currently in Beta, is in a good shape, and we're getting a lot of positive feedback from our community. We're watching closely every comment you write on the game. This extra development time will allow us to improve this popular game mode with some of your suggestions.

Steel Division 2 is our first self-published game, and we want to deliver the best game possible. Delaying the game a second time is an incredibly hard decision for us and we understand that some of you are disappointed.

But we'll make it up to you.

More (and better) beta playtime
Consequently, you will be able to play the game longer before release. Way longer. The initial plan was to make 5 48-hour phases before release. After the first phase, we heard your requests and made a 4-day Beta Phase 2. As you know, Phase 3 will start on Thursday, April 18th and will be 5 days long, until Tuesday, April 23rd.

From May 29th the Beta will be playable non-stop until release on June 20th. It will get updated during this 3-week period and we're preparing very cool content for you guys.

Additionally, there will be at least a fourth Beta phase in-between and we'll keep you updated. Before the game's release, we will continue to publish Dev Diaries (the next one's about Level Design) and to keep you posted on the game's development.

Thank you for your support
As a conclusion, we would like to thank you all for your support and your feedback on the beta. Reading so many useful comments, seeing all those badass screenshots and watching these cool videos on Youtube made by you guys is really amazing.

We can't wait to put Steel Division 2 in your hands.
