It's no surprise that many games in development will benefit from some extra polishing time.

The game is complete and we are currently playtesting it. It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it."
"We are sorry to keep you all waiting a little longer, but we want the game to meet your highest expectations on release and we don’t want to compromise on this."
Fans won't have too long to wait before they get to see some more from upcoming game. Next month, Techland has planned to invite both press and content creators to test out the PC and console version of the game, in preview events around the world.
