Could be nothing but weird that multiple retailers would suddenly change the date, no?

Inafune pls.

Edit: Seems to only apply to physical copies so far.

Wasn't the game supposed to already be finished, or close? I don't see what could delay it at this point.

Shit, something might have gone horribly wrong within the gameplay Q/A or some kind of game-breaking glitch that caused the delay.

It's a joke. Relax.

On topic however; it's also been changed at Canadian retailers - Best Buy Canada and EB Games specifically. Steam is the same.

probably delayed to coincide with the animated series, the live action movie, the cg movie, the manga, the daily comic, the toyline, the cereal, the backpack, the flamethrower and the sequel

probably nothing

Even if this is a random placeholder date, it seems weird that it's 2016 and not 2015.

Green Man Gaming, Steam, uPlay, the Square Enix Online store are all still 09/15/15

I'd lean towards digital being on time, physical being delayed.

Wishful thinking. Why would it be just retail?
Its quite worrying considering the funds required to get to this point; do they have enough backing for another year?

Some drvs would be able to get a second group funding but after the Red shit am not so sure.

That's odd - Canadian Best Buy is changed to 12/31/16, same with EB Games

There's no indications at all yet that the digital has been delayed. Steam still has the pre-order counter down to the hours up.

They're struggling to get this game to retail and they want people to give them money for another game - worse, a game that has barely nothing to say for what it will be like and how it will look? I mean shit, I don't mean to be so negative, but it's hard not to think that Inafune is losing a lot of favour for this.

Probably haven't changed it yet then hm.

Yeah this is looking to lead to a delay for retail, and this is coming not too far behind of the signature edition being cancelled also.

Wonder if they waited too long announcing the retail version to be able to meet production demand? It was only announced in April for mass production

When will people who play video games stop making huge generalisations about publishing, developing and funding resources of video games ie quit being an armchair analyst.

Like ok I get it, we gotta stand up for our rights and shit but posts like yours are just alarm bells for no reason. Let's wait till we get some actual information yeah?

I do think going from "let's set up two Kickstarters with stretch goals in the millions" to "we aren't getting a dime" could have possibly affected the health of the studio.
