E3 2016 – Yooka-Layee Trailer Streamed : Game to Launch Early 2017

Playtonic Games has recently announced that the fan driven Yooka-Layla has been delayed to early 2017.  In the meantime the company’s publisher, Team 17, has posted the E3 trailer for the game.  

Playtonic Games also had a response regarding the delay of the game.

While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally projected in our Kickstarter, the Playtonic team has decided that it would prefer to add a few extra months’ polish to the game schedule.

Ultimately, this will allow us to deliver a better game to the tens-of-thousands of you who’ve supported us throughout development. And that’s what we all want, right?

We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few extra months’ wait, however the team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when Yooka-Laylee arrives early next year.

So far I think the project is looking really promising and I don’t mind a delay of the game as long as the production time was put to good use.  I can’t wait to see the final product and I hope that it will be successful when it gets released.
