The Settlers Reboot Delayed

A post to The Settlers Alliance (which triggered an insecure site warning on our end) says that Ubisoft will not settle for a sub-par installment in The Settlers series, so they are delaying the release of their The Settlers reboot (thanks Neowin). This was expected this year, but now the game's launch date is up in the air:
Hello dear “The Settlers” fans,

Since the announcement that “The Settlers” are back, we have received an overwhelming amount of comments, feedback and suggestions.

There are so many “The Settlers” fans out there who love the many different aspects of the game. Be it the economic part, the military, the look and feel, the “wuselfaktor” or the inviting world – to name a few. We are incredibly grateful for your feedback, and over the last few months, while performing playtests and diary studies, one thing became clear: while we are on the right path to deliver a great game, we really want to deliver an exceptional gaming experience.

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.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Cheers,
Your “The Settlers” Team
