A recent development update at the official Shadowbane web site has revealed that the upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game may be in the works a little longer than anticipated. Originally slated for release sometime in the first half of 2002, Wolfpack Studios, developers of Shadowbane, have determined that their users will be better served if the game is held in beta testing for a few more months.
As those anticipating this game are no doubt aware, Shadowbane has been in beta testing for about a month and a half. Wolfpack cites the problems found in beta testing as a primary reason for the holdup, and now states that the title will "be ready when it is ready."
Their current development plan is as follows:
Our current plan is to steadily increase the number of players in the beta test throughout the next few months, culminating in a very large test group (thinking many thousands) some time this summer. While this news may be disappointing to some, Wolfpack stresses that they do plan on getting Shadowbane out as fast as possible, but without compromising the quality of the game. Those interested in reading the full report can find it at the official Shadowbane site.
