King's Bounty II – Developer Q&A
1C Entertainment and Koch Media today announced that King’s Bounty II, the upcoming entry in the critically acclaimed, turn-based tactical role-playing King’s Bounty series, will be released on August 24, 2021, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The original launch date of March 2021, was revised to ensure the best experience for players when the title launches later this year.
“As a team, we had to make the difficult decision to move King’s Bounty II's release to a later point in 2021 to ensure the team has adequate time to deliver the best possible King’s Bounty experience,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, CEO of 1C Entertainment.
“We are currently at a stage where the content is complete and playable, but we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing. The revised launch date will give us additional time for balancing, which is much needed for such an important project, with its ambitious open world, complex narrative and deep turn-based tactical and RPG mechanics,“ said Denis Maltzev, King’s Bounty II producer. “Seeing the love and passion that you, our fans, put behind this project, we are grateful for all your support and ask for a little more patience. We are hoping that this won’t feel like a long delay and please make sure to keep an eye on our news channels to receive the latest updates as we approach the new release date.“
