Stainless Games has announced an update to the Carmageddon: Reincarnation launch date, which is a nice way of saying that it’s been delayed. It was, until earlier today, set to come out on April 23; today, however, the studio said it won’t actually be out the door until May 21.
“As you all know, weâ€™d set our release date as the 23rd [of] April. Well, despite all our best efforts (and believe me, the dev team have been working around the clock 24/7 to achieve this goal) Iâ€™m announcing today that weâ€™re pushing that date out by what is technically referred to as ‘a tad’,” Stainless wrote on Steam.
“Weâ€™ve been making great strides on all fronts, and were within a metric smidge of releasing next week, but in our final ‘Go/No Go’ meeting we all agreed that the extra time was needed,” it continued. “The additional month gives us time to polish various areas of the game even further.”
Carmageddon: Reincarnation is the latest addition to the long-running series of racing/vehicular manslaughter games. The 1997 original was infamous for its over-the-top violence and blood-spattering ways, and Reincarnation looks set to be every bit as silly. It raised $625,000 on Kickstarter in 2012, and made it to Steam Early Access in March 2014.
