Rex Crowle, the creative lead for Media Molecule has today posted on the EU PS Blog that the highly anticipated platformer Tearaway will now be released in Europe on November 22nd, a delay of a month. An identical post on the US PS Blog by Siobhan Reddy states that this is also the case for the North American release.
They said: “Tearaway is our first handheld game, set in a totally new world, with characters on a new adventure. Throughout development we have constantly explored all the ways we could think of to create the most fun and enjoyable experiences possible on a PS Vita, whilst also learning how to make a 3D creative platformer! We are really proud of the work we are doing, and are really excited to share it with you!
We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realisation that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game; to tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play. To give us that time, we’ve decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22nd.
We’re really, really sorry for the minor delay, we promise you hand on heart that the wait will be worthwhile! Thanks for being patient, please don’t be too cross with us, lots of love, Mm xxxx”
Whilst we can’t say that we aren’t disappointed, we are sure that it will be worth the wait. Are you excited for Tearaway?
