World of Goo 2 delayed until August 2nd

By - | Views: 26,307

The goo has gotten a bit stuck, and so the May release date previously announced for World of Goo 2 has been pushed back to August 2nd.

As a reminder, World of Goo 2 will have Linux support but you will need to buy it direct as it's going to be on the Epic Store. Presumably it will eventually hit Steam after their Epic Exclusive deal is up. At least they're still providing direct-purchases though.

From the announcement:

The Goo is flowing, balls are coalescing, and blinking eyes lift up towards the sky where a mysterious pipe is rumored to appear. But instead, a signpost rises up out of the ground. “Good news!,” it says. “The World of Goo 2 launch date has been enhanced. It has now moved to August 2, 2024. We are proud to offer you this enhancement free of charge!”

From the Team: We have really appreciated your kind comments and patience while we finish building the best possible game!

I think its really nice of world of goo that they were willing to actively keep Linux support when they already rake in the big Epic bucks.

I'm not a fan of Epic, but I think its really brave to go up against 3 industry titans at the same time.
It's also impressive that they're currently winning 2 of those 3 battles.


Also now it's not an upgrade or update. Now it's an enhancement.
I'll be pedantic and try to differentiate.
An update tackles problems with an by external events changed priority.
An enhancement adds previously planned/announced improvements.
An upgrade adds improvements so large that the product moves up a price category.

Looking forward to this, but there is no rush.

However, not going to sign up for Epic.

QuoteAt least they're still providing direct-purchases though.

Well, that is ok then.

I have the first on both Wii and Steam but never played it through.
Sounds like it's time to finish it.
