SteamWorld Heist gets delayed on PlayStation.

SteamWorld Heist Delayed for PlayStation + New Release Dates

Howdy, everyone! We’ve got somewhat sad news to share with you today. But fear not, it’s not the end of the world!

SteamWorld Heist has been delayed on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita for roughly one week. The new target release dates are June 7th for North America and June 8th for Europe and Australia.

The reasons for the delay are related to publishing, localisation and quality assurance. We basically encountered a few scattered problems with the PlayStation versions that we have to fix before releasing the game. If you want more info, feel free to ask me directly in the comment section. The extra week will hopefully give us enough time to fix these issues.

We’re working closely together with the fantastic people over at Sony to get the game out as fast as possible. Thanks for being patient with us!

Everything will be alright!

There, there… Everything will be alright.

The silver lining: AKA “reasons why the delay isn’t all that bad”:

  1. You’ll get an even better version of SteamWorld Heist when it hits PlayStation. Lame excuse, I know, but it’s true!
  2. You have a few more days to clear your backlog and/or your clutter (I’m looking at you, messy wardrobe!).
  3. You’ll have another week to pre-order the game for a nice discount if you’re in Europe or Australia.
  4. You can finally get around to watching Game of Thrones, or another show you’ve been putting off watching for ages.
  5. You can practice speedrunning SteamWorld Dig. The current world record is 22 minutes and 57 seconds (crazy!). Think you can beat that?

I could go on forever. Think I’ve missed something? Let me know in the comment section!

    It is far better to fix this game before rather than try to patch it later. You made the hard call on this and I commend you all for that. I cant wait to play this version but It could always be far worse. 🙂

    • Thanks for the love and cheerfulness, Bobby! 😀 You rule!

  • evans

    I have a question sorta PS related : will you release a retail version of the game on Vita? Maybe even bundled with Dig? I’m sure the folks at Limited Run Games would be willing to help *wink*

    • Really cool idea! We’re looking into physical versions but have no news to share at this moment 😀

  • Peace Boy

    *Is still waiting for the Wii U version* :/
