The spiritual successor to Mega Man from Comcept and Keiji Inafune, Mighty No.9 has been delayed until 2016 and wont meet its previously announced release date of September this year.
While there had been rumours of a delay, the developer has now made it official by announcing it in a backers-only forum post, confirming said rumours.
The post from the forums reads:
“As we have communicated in the updates to our backers, all of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state. However, there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game. These bugs and issues have a direct affect on enjoyment of the game, so a decision was made to work these issues out before release.
“Currently, comcept and their partners are working at full capacity to resolve these issues
and fix any remaining bugs.”
The original release for Mighty No.9, as stated on it’s Kickstarter campaign, was April 2015 but after being pushed back to September it still looked like it would make it out this year. However now we know we wont be seeing a full release of the Mega Man successor in 2015.
The uncanny timing of this delay comes after not only weeks of speculation but it also comes a few days after Comcept’s other video game project Red Ash had failed to meet it’s fundraising goal in it’s Kickstarter campaign.
