The Banner Saga was one of the surprise hits of the last few years. Seemingly coming out of nowhere and wowing people with it’s fun, but difficult, gameplay and it’s incredibly deep story. So when Stoic Games announced The Banner Saga 2, fans rejoiced. Now, Eurogamer is reporting that The Banner Saga 2 is being pushed back to first-quarter 2016.
Now before you worry, Stoic Games took to Facebook to talk about the delay, and notes that the game is actually coming along quite well:
“Seeing a lot of news about #BannerSaga2 and console ports today – just wanted to share this with all of you.
The console ports of the Banner Saga are in full effect. We are currently wrapping up development for the first game now (in with 1st party submission). The delays in the console is mainly game development fun, but we have also spent time working on console specific controls to make it perform as a console game, more than just a port.
Banner Saga 2’s development is progressing nicely. Customers who have attended Gamescom and PAX have seen its progress. We will update everyone on its launch date when the timing is right.
The board game is being developed by MegaCon Games and in no way has affected our development on porting Banner Saga to consoles nor has it caused any delays to Banner Saga 2.”
