The Playtonic Team have released their E3 trailer along with the news that the game is slipping to Q1 2017.
First of all, watch the awesome trailer:
In a message to Kickstarter backers, the team apologised for not hitting their expected October 2016 release date.
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 extra 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 extra 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.
From the look of the game and the incredible echoes of Banjo-Kazooie, we're quite alright with waiting a little longer. Yooka-Laylee looks like a beautiful throwback of a game that's being willingly pulled into this generation of gaming. This is one of those Kickstarters we are honoured to be a part of.
