Immortals of Aveum, an eagerly anticipated fantasy first-person shooter published by Electronic Arts (EA) under its Originals umbrella, was a standout title at this year’s Summer Game Fest. However, fans will have to exercise patience as the game’s developer, Ascendant Studios, has announced a delay in its release until August 22nd, pushing it back by a month from its original launch date.
In a recent blog post, game director Bret Robbins and the Ascendant team explained the reasons behind the delay. “In order to realize our full vision, we are going to take a few extra weeks, making our new launch date Tuesday, August 22nd,” they wrote. “This will give us time to further polish the game, finish optimizing all platforms and deliver a strong launch. We owe it to ourselves and to you to get this right.”
