The release of the popular strategy game, Hero Academy, has been delayed on Steam. The game, which was originally scheduled for an August 8, 2012 debut, will be relaunched on August 16, 2012.
The delay was caused by a last minute bug that was only affecting a small percentage of players but the developer, Robot Entertainment, refused to release an imperfect game. Robot Entertainment’s Justin Korthof said, “We ran into an unexpected issue at the last minute. The issue only seems to affect a small portion of players, but we’re not comfortable shipping the game until we’ve resolved it. We know it’s a nuisance for players who were excited to start playing yesterday, but it’s important to us that Hero Academy is at its best when it’s released.”
Despite the new official release date of August 16, Robot Entertainment is hoping to get Hero Academy out faster. Justin Korthof gave gamers hope of an earlier release, when he said, “While it could take that long to release, we’re optimistic that it will be out sooner than that. We want to release the highest quality game possible, and we’re working hard to get this issue resolved quickly. We’re hoping to have more info about an updated release date later today or early tomorrow, and we’ll continue to keep people updated through our Twitter feed and Facebook page.”
