Sinn Studio, the developers of the popular VR combat game Swordsman VR, announced today on social media that their upcoming release on the Meta Quest app lab store has been delayed until June 9th, 2022. The previous release date was slated for May 26th.
Their social media post read
"We’re moving the App Lab and Advanced Combat update release to June 9th, 2022.
May 26th is still an important date; we’ll be hosting a pre-release live stream where we’ll showcase a preview of advanced combat and share some secrets on what will be coming to Swordsman this year. We’ll also be giving away x3 Quest 2 headsets, x3 Sinn Studio hoodies, and x3 $100 Gifts Cards. Join our Discord for a chance to win these awesome prizes, more information on the giveaway coming today! https://discord.gg/JG8fEhDHe6
We’re at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but we’ve identified significant opportunities for improvement, and we want to tackle these before we share it with all of you. We feel that this update transforms Swordsman into a new game and we want to ensure that everyone jumping into battle has the best possible experience.
Thanks for being patient with us; we hope you’re as excited for this game-changing update as we are. We can’t wait to see how everyone will do in battle with advanced combat!"
Game delays can hurt for a moment, but it's always better to have a game that is at its best release state than to push out something not ready just to meet a deadline.
May 26th isn't dead in the water though. As stated in their original post, and further elaborated in a follow up post, Sinn Studio will be doing a live stream stream at 4pm EST on their Twitch channel to show off a full preview of Advanced Combat, revealing all the awesome stuff coming to Swordsman VR in 2022, and giving away some prizes.
