The PC version was supposed to be coming out sometime in summer this year, but this might not happen after all.
Why, I hear you ask? It’s apparently due to publisher/developer relations as a partner publisher, Warhorse, wants to put the game on shop shelves.
The issue with this is that a pending publisher, not yet named, wants to have a simulaneous release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The pretty big problem with that, is that the console versions are just not as complete as the PC version, which has been the lead platform from the start.
So, this may result in a delayed release for Kingdom Come on PC.
PR manager Tobias Stolz-Zwiling said,
“We are still working on the summer release date. The idea was to release the game in the summer and then to follow up with the console versions.”
“Right now we are still indie developers but we are in negotiations with publishers to, well, we need someone to bring the games into the shops, so we need a distributor, and he kind of wants us to synch it with the console versions. We are still in negotiations, we will see.”
“Best case for you will be summer this year for the PC version and then with the follow-up for consoles; or if the publisher wants us to synch it we will release everything let’s say by the end of the year, so we will see about that.”
If this ends up happening, the PC version might see some improvements in these extra few months. Still, this has to be pretty frustrating for people who have been supporting this game from early on.
