Mighty No. 9 was rumored to have been delayed into next year. Now, it has been confirmed that we will not be able to get our hands on the game until 2016.
Today developer Comcept announced that Mighty No. 9 was delayed through a message to the game’s backers (via NeoGAF). The developer stated: “We are unable to confirm a final release date at this time, however we will be aiming for a release in Q1 2016. Once a solid release date is set, we will announce it immediately to our backers and fans.”
Comcept says that the game was delayed in order to give the developer time to fix bugs. “All of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state. However, there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game. These bugs and issues have a direct affect on enjoyment of the game, so a decision was made to work these issues out before release.”
“Currently Comcept and their partners are working at full capacity to resolve these issues and fix any remaining bugs… We appreciate your support and patience regarding this matter, and look forward to delivering Mighty No. 9 to our backers and fans in the best state possible.”
Mighty No. 9 will release on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, 3DS, and Wii U. It was also recently announced that a movie based on the game is in development as well.
