The virtual reality game Star Trek: Bridge Crew is getting a new release date in early 2017, four months after its original launch date in November. Ubisoft did not provide a specific reason for the delay.
The VR-exclusive title was set to launch on Nov. 29 for the VR headsets: the PlayStation VR that is also set to launch next month, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Ubisoft made the announcement at Gamescom, but now they are backtracking on their promise via a short blog post.
Why Did Ubisoft Delay Star Trek: Bridge Crew?
"In order to deliver the best game experience possible at launch, we have decided to push the release of Star Trek: Bridge Crew," the announcement reads. "We want to offer a compelling and engaging experience. Command of the USS Aegis is right around the corner!"
No specifics were mentioned, but it did confirm that players will get their hands on it on March 14, 2017. According to reports, there may be too many bugs and issues in Star Trek: Bridge Crew that might take months to fix.
What Is Star Trek: Bridge Crew?
Fans of the popular "Star Trek" franchise will be among those who will buy the game as soon as it is launched. Star Trek: Bridge Crew offers the players the experience of being a crew member in the iconic Federation starship.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew can be played with friends and as the official description reads, decisions that they make together will have an effect on the ship and the crew. Players will be taken by the U.S.S. Aegis to explore The Trench in which they will encounter the Klingon.
Per Engadget, the Star Trek: Bridge Crew early reviews have been positive so far, so there is that to keep the fans and gamers reeling in for updates. Hopefully though, the game will be free from bugs once it is released to make the four more months of wait worth it.
