Playtonic Games has released a new trailer for their upcoming platformer, Yooka-Laylee. The developer has also announced that the title has been delayed.
The new gameplay trailer shows us Yooka-Laylee in action and gives us a glimpse at the game’s colorful world. The trailer also confirms at the end that the title has been pushed back to Q1 2017.
“As well as revealing the first gameplay in over a year, this video also confirms that, after long consideration and knowing through dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017,” the studio stated.
“While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally projected in our Kickstarter, the Playtonic team has decided that it would prefer to add a few months’ polish to the game schedule. Ultimately, this will allow us to deliver a better game to the tens-of-thousands of you who’ve supported us throughout development. And that’s what we all want, right?
“We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few months’ wait, however the team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when Yooka-Laylee arrives early next year.”
Yooka-Laylee will release in 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
