WrestleQuest, the game that combines professional wrestling and fantasy RPG, will no longer be released on PS5 and PS4 in May 2023. After discussions with publisher Skybound Games, developer Mega Cat Studios has revealed that WrestleQuest has been delayed, and the title has been pushed back to a more vague release window of this summer. A new release date is supposedly coming later this month.
Why WrestleQuest is being delayed
Mega Cat Studios released a statement confirming “a new partnership [it is] extremely excited about” that has resulted in issues that have caused WrestleQuest to be delayed again. The developer didn’t release more details about this partnership, but it could be another wrestling icon joining the roster alongside Jake the Snake Roberts, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Bret Hart, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, Koko B. Ware, the Legion of Doom duo, and André the Giant. In this case, the issues would likely pertain to licensing.
The good news is that the delay has also allowed Mega Cat to go back to add new features and improve on others, like “an entirely redone UI, accessibility options, a fully updated world map, enhanced visuals, more sweat, and a gorilla press quantity of game balancing.”
The game will have more than 50 hours of content for players as they work their way from an aspiring rookie to a world champion wrestler. Unlike the aforementioned wrestling stars, players will also have to face wild realms, exotic monsters, and action figure fighters as they build up their career.
