Adapting a 4X strategy title to consoles has been one of the biggest challenges in the history of video games, which even today still does not have a satisfactory answer for users. The limitation of the controls on the controller and the agility that this type of game requires makes porting them to a console version an arduous task, and if not, tell the development team Amplitude Studios Y Aspirwho have now announced that the console version of Humankind is delay indefinitely.
This has been communicated in a press release, and they allege that the delay is due to unique challenges, which are undoubtedly related to some of the factors that we have mentioned above. For now, they are returning the money of those who made the reservation in the digital stores, and they have also apologized for the inconvenience caused:
“We apologize for the inconvenience, but rest assured that Sega Europe, Amplitude Studios and Aspyr are working hard to bring the best possible Humankind experience to console gamers. Right now we can’t give a timeline on a new release date, but as soon as we’re in a position to do so, we’ll let everyone know and thank the community for their continued support and understanding.”
While we can’t enjoy them on other platforms for now, Humankind PC gamers can look forward to the huge “Together We Rule” expansion coming out on November 9as planned.
