Gavin Price, Creative Director and MD of Playtonic Games had this to say,
“We are really excited to release today the E3 trailer of Yooka-Laylee and confirm our presence in Los Angles where we will showcase the game for the first time to the media and influencers. After a lot of soul searching and knowing though dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017. While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally planned, the team had decided to add a few extra months’ polish to our schedule. Ultimately this will allow us to release a better game to thousands of fans that have supported us throughout development.
“We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of an extra few months’ wait, however the Playtonic team is confident we have made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when the game arrives early next year.”
Yooka-Laylee is set to release Q1 2017 for PC and consoles, stay tuned for more information on Yooka-Laylee in the next week at E3.
