The Banner Saga 2 Delayed to 2016

Stoic’s The Banner Saga 2 has been delayed to Q1 2016, publisher Versus Evil has confirmed to Eurogamer. The game was originally scheduled to release this year but will be missing its release window. The original game‘s PlayStation 4 and Vita versions were due out this year as well, and while we don’t have a release date, Versus Evil has told Game Informer that the developer is wrapping up development for those.

The console ports of the Banner Saga are in full affect. We are currently wrapping up development for the first game now (in with 1st party submission). The delays in the console is mainly game development fun, but also the team has spent time working on console specific controls to make it perform as a console game, more than just a port.

Banner Saga 2’s development is progressing nicely. Customers who have attended Gamescom and PAX have seen its progress. We will update everyone on its launch date when the timing is right.

The board game is being developed by MegaCon Games and in no way has affected our development on porting Banner Saga to consoles nor has it caused any delays in Banner Saga 2.

We’ll update our readers when we have more information and a release date.
