Basement Crawl delayed because reasons

by: Nathaniel -

A few days ago, I was all like, "Basement Crawl is coming out tomorrow, lawl...."

Later, looking at my Twitter feed, I was all like, "Why are people Tweeting at me because the game is late hitting the PSN?  It's not like I have any say in it, lawl....."

Today, I'm all like, "Oh, I see, they waited until the game's release date to delay it.  Seem legit to me, lawl...."

Word of God is this:

“While the completed version of Basement Crawl was prepped for launch during the last week, several exciting opportunities to partner with major industry players to enhance, refine and add-to the game arose,” said Piotr Babieno, CEO, Bloober Team. “Although a difficult decision, we decided that the best choice for us, as a team, was to delay Basement Crawl so that we could take full advantage of these opportunities. We will be able leverage those new partnerships to further grow and improve the game while still providing an amazingly fun multiplayer experience for PS4 owners. We’ll be able to announce more details in the days and weeks to come.”

So there you have it.  Pretty simple, eh?  They discovered very late - like maybe as late as the week the game was supposed to come out - that they could make more money off of it.  Do you blame them?  I don't.

Now, the release date is listed as "first quarter of Q1."  You can find out more about Basement Crawl and Bloober Team on the web and on Facebook.
