Chivalry 2 Has Been Delayed Until 2021
The long-awaited medieval fighting game Chivalry 2 has officially been delayed until 2021, whilst the usual reasons of adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic were given, there are some interesting other reasons for the delay. No specific date for next year has been announced, but the game will be launching simultaneously on PC and consoles at least. This means that along with implementing quality of life features and improvements, content originally planned for post-launch will now be included in the base game. So players can look forward to more maps and features. However, horses have suffered a setback and are now slated to arrive post-launch.
The developers said, stating that the team’s development timelines have been shifted due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has affected so many other games and studios.
“We believe this updated timeline is necessary to allow Chivalry 2 to be the greatest game it can be, and one that realizes our vision of a “true sequel” to the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare,”
As one of the inspiring first-person multiplayer games set in the medieval era, Chivalry received a heartwarming reception from gamers when it launched back in 2012. Extremely focusing on large-scale melee battles between medieval empires, Chivarly brought a brand new experience for players, though it has its own issues and problems.
What the Chivalry 2 delay means for alpha and beta testing
Along with the delayed release date, Torn Banner announced that the previously-planned public beta is postponed, too. Originally slated to go live this summer, Torn Banner said it will announce a specific date “soon.” This mirrors the general 2021 launch window for Chivalry 2. Banner Torn hasn’t announced a specific release window outside of next year.
On the upside, chivalry 2 will now launch simultaneously on PC (via the Epic Games Store) and current-gen as well as next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
