While Curve Digital’s MouseCraft is definitely releasing on July 8th/9th, The Swapper, which was planned to come out next week, has been delayed until August 5th in North America and August 6th in Europe.
Curve Digital Managing Director Jason Perkins talked a little about the delay, which was due to the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game needing “extra time” for polish and optimization:
The Swapper is our first indie title to really push the limits of the PlayStation 3 and Vita. We’ve been able to really throw the power of the PS4 at the game, but we also want to ensure that when the game comes out, it looks great and runs well at 30fps on hardware that, in the case of the PlayStation 3, is over seven years old.
When The Swapper does come out, it will be available for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, complete with cross-buy. In late July, the game will go up for pre-order on the PlayStation store at a discounted price.
Are you disappointed by the delay?
