The developers ‘want to make sure the player experience is perfect’
Bandai Namco has announced.the Xbox One and PS4 ports of Shadow Warrior won’t be released until October.
The classic FPS had originally been set to hit 8th gen consoles on 26th September in Europe, with a North American release date also planned that month. Now PS4 and Xbox One will be getting Shadow Warrior on 24th October instead.
“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,” said Flying Wild Hog, the developers responsible for the Shadow Warrior reboot.
“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.”
Shadow Warrior initially made a comeback last year for PC receiving largely positive reviews at the time.
Lo Wang needs a little more prep time for new gen.
