Kingdom Come Deliverance PC Release Could Get Halted to Match Consoles

Warhorse Studios really impressed me with the visual quality of their medieval RPG even in its alpha phase, so much so that we were expecting to get the game sooner. However, it seems there are chances that the developers might hold back the Kingdom Come Deliverance PC release for at least half a year.

While the officials have not explicitly said that they will do so, the developers have hinted they might want to launch the game’s PC and console versions together.

This contradicts with the expected summer release of the Kingdom Come Deliverance PC version. Tobias Stolz-Zwiling, the PR manager of Warhorse Studios recently commented on the matter saying that although they are “still working on the summer release date,” publisher demands might change that.

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.

According to Stolz-Zwiling, the best case scenario still is a summer release for PC and a year end release for the console version, but if the publisher wants they could do both at the year end.

Wondering how good the Kingdom Come Deliverance PC and console version can be? Check out our impressions and hands-on preview of the game’s alpha.

The game is being developed for PC, Xbox One and PS4, and the beta testing phase is scheduled to launch day after tomorrow.
