Amazon’s MMO, New World, has been delayed one last time

Amazon’s upcoming MMO, New World, proved to be incredibly popular when its closed beta arrived on Steam, achieving concurrent player counts of over 200,000. Not bad for a closed beta. 

Before now, Amazon’s MMO was due to release on August 31st, 2021, but after receiving feedback from the game’s closed beta, Amazon has decided to delay the game’s final release by four weeks to fix bugs, improve stability, and add more polish to the game. Now, New World is due to release on September 28th, 2021. 

That said, some fans of the MMO are annoyed at Amazon for delaying their game again. Originally, New World was due to release in May 2020, and the game has been delayed multiple times since then. While this delay is disappointing for the game’s fans, we can’t fault Amazon for wanting their MMO to be more polished before its official launch. We all remember what Cyberpunk 2077 was like at launch… 

   We are humbled by the support New World received from players around the world throughout Closed Beta. During Beta, more than a million adventurers entered Aeternum. Thanks to your support, New World became one of the most watched games on Twitch, and one of the most played games on Steam. The passion and enthusiasm you’ve shown for New World validates the work we’ve put in over the past year, improving the game based on your feedback.

Along the way, you’ve also given us a ton of feedback that we’ll use to make New World even better. We want New World’s launch to be a smooth and fun experience for all players, and that means making some improvements based on what you encountered during Closed Beta. So we’re going to take a few extra weeks to smash bugs, improve stability, and polish the game. New World’s new global launch date is September 28, 2021.

This was not an easy decision to make. We know this isn’t the first time we’ve changed our launch date in pursuit of quality, and that it can be disappointing to wait a bit longer. But we want to be sure we deliver you the highest quality game possible at launch. Thank you for your support and feedback. We’re listening. We’ll see you in Aeternum.
