THQ Nordic and Bugbear Entertainment have announced today that the release of Wreckfest on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be delayed. The release was originally scheduled for 20th November 2018, but has now been shifted to 2019.
Roger Joswig, Senior Producer at THQ Nordic had this to say;
“Wreckfest for consoles will only be released as soon as we love playing it. After the fantastic release on PC, the benchmark for the console release is much higher. At this moment, the team needs more time to polish the multiplayer part, as well as the overall performance on the game to bring it up to par with the experience on PC. We are sorry for keeping fans waiting longer because of this. However, we already have compensation in the form of further vehicles, including a special crazy vehicle, in the works for consoles.”
In the meantime here’s a trailer to watch over and over until it finally hits consoles.
Expect epic crashes, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line and brand-new ways for metal to bend – these are the once-in-a-lifetime moments that can only be achieved in Wreckfest, with its true-to-life physics simulation crafted by legendary developer Bugbear, who also brought you FlatOut 1, 2 and Ultimate Carnage. Burn rubber and shred metal in the ultimate driving playground!
Awesome cars – Old, banged-up, patched-together cars that simply ooze style. From old American heavy-hitters to agile Europeans and fun Asians, you won’t find anything like this in other games.
Meaningful customization – Change not only the look of your cars but also upgrade their body armour.
Multiplayer – Wreck your friends online and take racing to the limit while chasing for demolition dominance.
