Cossacks 3 for Linux has been delayed, yet again

By - | Views: 6,341

I really hope this is for the last time, but in all fairness the delay isn't too long this time. Cossacks 3 [Steam, GOG] for Linux has been delayed until the 29th of March.

The Facebook update said:

QuoteDear friends!

Due to our desire to bring Mac and Linux versions of the game up to par with our new standards of quality, we're announcing that the release of Cossacks 3 on Mac and Linux has changed - now it's March 29. This way we can be sure, that the new versions of the game are ready for a release.

But there's no reason to lose heart, as we're glad to announce that a huge content patch will be released in a few days, that will finish the ranking system and tweak the game's balance once again.

Have a nice day!

While I'm sad we've seen yet another delay, I'm glad they are working to make it a polished experience for us. A two week delay is tolerable after multiple delays already, as long as it performs well on release.

Still, it's quite frustrating as a big fan of the RTS genre to have to wait again. Luckily the Cossacks developers already gave us keys so we can dive in as soon as it's released, but it seems we won't be getting the beta access they previously said we would be.

It's a delay, not a cancel. So I'm not really disappoionted. It's a game I'm planning to get, hopefully it will run on Mesa AMDGPU driver.

I can't wait to spend my money on this.

Just finished Dawn of War II incl. both expansions. So I am definitely looking forward to this one ;-)

Cossacks ages ago has been my favorite historical themed RTS. I loved it more than Age of Empires (and I liked a lot AoE). I have a huge backlog now so I do not see spending €20 any time soon (a huge discount may trigger me though).

I remember they had said in March so if they make it before the end of the month is it really a delay or just a stretch?

to be fair i gladly see developers delay there games or products if they arent happy with it
i also believe we should honor them for doing so we dont want another ubisoft or more broken games on steam

I'm ok with this small delay as I have been buying too many games lately lol.

No problem with it either, I have several games I've barely touched though I guess I'm more hyped for Cossacks.
