New World delayed again, this time to September 2021

Patience, players...

Amazon’s New World MMO has been delayed again, this time into late September 2021.

This is the third delay for the title, originally expected in August 2020 before being delayed into 2021, and then August 2021.

“We are humbled by the support New World received from players arolund the world throughout Closed Beta,” its developers wrote on Twitter. “During Beta, more than a million adventurers played more than 16 million total hours.

“Along the way, you’ve also given us a ton of feedback that we’ll use to make New World even better. We want New World‘s launch to be a smooth and fun experience for all players, and that means making some improvements based on what you encountered during Closed Beta. So we’re going to take a few extra weeks to smash bugs, improve stability, and polish the game. New World‘s new global launch date is September 28, 2021.”

During its beta, New World made headlines as it reportedly busted a ton of EVGA GeForce RTX 30390 GTW3 GPUs, which EVGA replaced at no cost.

Expect New World on PC from 28 September.
