Jurassic Park Game From TellTale Delayed Until Autumn
Telltale Games were planning to kick-off their forthcoming season of Jurassic Park video games in April, but have now delayed the project and it will now not launch until Autumn 2011. The developers stated that the game needs more time in order to reach the standards they would be happy with. Those customers who have already pre-ordered the season will all be receiving a full refund and Telltale are also preparing to send out free game tokens to all of those affected, as compensation for the delay – which can then be redeemed against any title of their choice.
Telltale CEO Dan Connors explained that: “Our goal was to release the first episode of Jurassic Park: The Game this month, and currently we are very excited about how the game’s creation is progressing… The game’s mechanics and storytelling have come together in such a way that we see great potential, so much so that we feel we can push these elements to the next level if we spend some extra time working on them. It is because of this that we are delaying Jurassic Park: The Game on PC to ensure PC players get the best possible gaming experience.”
He went on to add: “We’ll be investing the extra time into making the game great and it will be released simultaneously on every platform this fall. We regret any disappointment on the part of our fans but we are confident you’ll be pleased with our decision when the game comes out. We will begin issuing the refunds over the next couple of days and will reach out to you with information via email on how to get your free game.”
