Bandai Namco has announced that Shadow Warrior will now release on October 24th, pushing it back a month from the original September 26th date. The delay is down to certain challenges that developer Flying Wild Hog has faced by trying to bring the PC title to the PS4 and Xbox One.
“Bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and XB1 has proven to be a challenge for us as we want to make sure the player experience is perfect. In play testing we have been focusing in on the controller inputs and response.
We recognized that we needed more time to improve this as Shadow Warrior is an old school FPS and this demands perfection. Sadly this means a small delay in the release date, but Lo Wang needs to be at his best on these shiny new consoles.”
This pushes Shadow Warrior right into a busy release period as the big hitters start to roll out. The game does look like it will offer something a bit different to other titles, and if you can’t wait until then you can purchase Shadow Warrior on PC.
