This news will come as a shock to many, as the studio appeared to be ready for a next-gen release window.

The delay

The game is delayed until December 10, with the reasons being that they have to test the game on so many platforms.

With the release across current-gen, next-gen, PC and more, 9 different versions of the game need to be stress-tested.
