Today capcom officially announced that the public beta testing for the upcoming PS4 exclusive Deep Down has been delayed to next year.
It was expected though, this game suddenly went into a dark corner and sat there quietly. It is better to have a delay to make the game better. This is the kind of game that if they don't take time to develop it correctly, it could release with a lot of bugs.
Yeah, I know is was coming. But still quite sad about it.
Perhaps Bloodborne stole its shine?
As much as I want to play this... I'm alright with this. With BloodBorne coming and the momentum building for the console. I think that It's right that they get this game right so that it can be successful with as little bugs as possible.
And Capcom recently said that it won't be at TGS, so that was another thing.
I think it could be a good thing if it releases side by side with Bloodborne. For those who can't buy Bloodborne day one will have this to keep them busy. Win-Win.
Capcom can never manage to make their last loyal fans happy... 2015?? for a beta?? is the game then delayed until 2016?
I dont wanna live anymore!! http://youtu.be/-ZwximsB55w
Uggghhhh this is one of my more anticipated games for the PS4, even more so than BloodBorne. I hope this just means it won't come out as a turd and be good.
You're more excited for a Capcom free to play game than Bloodborne being directed by Miyazaki? Madness I tell you MADNESS!!!
As long is they keep updating us with amazing looking gameplay like that. Take as much time as you need
I'm not surprised but still sad :-(
*tin foil hat* Maybe Sony agreed to a temporary exclusive deal and Capcom'b biding their time to make it multi, ala SE and FFVersusXIII, now FFXV.
Maybe Deep Down 2 will go multiplat, but not this one because Japan Studio working on it too.
Arkham Knight. The Witcher. The Division. The Order. I think Destiny is all I have left of my day 1 buy list this year. What a supreme disappointment this has been. I'm anxious to try the PS+ version of Driveclub before I decide what racer to get. HOPEFULLY Planetside 2 still makes this calendar year. And where is Secret Ponhcos? Damn man..
On the bright side... Destiny is likely to consume enough hours to get us to 2015... EDIT: As for Planetside 2...I really hope SOE put more of a tutorial / new joiners experience in to it. I played the original Planetside to death, but because Planetside 2 is so much bigger I found it hard to get in to on PC - felt like I was always chasing battles rather than taking part. (But still very much looking forward to it on PS4, but think Destiny is likely to get in the way)
Dying Light, BF, Mad Max, Evolve. They didnt get delayed, just had a fake release date advertised first. Helps to maintain hype and get preorders. But surely one can say that it is only a coincidence...
Funny, when news was posted on this earlier in the year I got shot down when I said this wouldn't see a western release until 2015 at the earliest. Now the Japanese won't even see the beta until 2015.
Delay? Nothing new at all.
Seems to be the theme of this generation
Yep Delaygen™ :p
Isnt it just convenient that every game that the PS4 boasted about in 2013 fooling us to buy the damn thing gets delayed one by one at a time? Coincidence, I THINK NOT!!!
Can't speak for anyone else, but I didn't get fooled into buying anything. This is a disappointment, but I don't regret a damn thing.
Not regretting anything myself, just find it funny that everything just started getting delayed one by one when it came close to "release".
PS4 was simply rushed to market to go toe-to-toe with the XB1. Majority of the games they showed at E3 were to build hype to shift consoles, at least 50% of that content has been delayed yet how many games on XB1 have been delayed? The fact that almost every game I've played to date on PS4 crashes says there's either an issue with the hardware/software or the devs. To date BF4, Last of Us, Black Light, Warframe, Assassins Creed 4 stand alone DLC and Mercenary Kings to name a few all crash with alarming regularity. It was rushed, plain and simple.
I've played all these but TLOU and only BF4 crashed on me, and not very regularly. Seems more like an issue specific to you... And if you think X1's games weren't delayed, first I palmface, then you read #10 above, and finally you palmface.
I'm going to play a lot of waiting games till' one of these released in 2015. Good thing I have Wii U to keep me busy easily. Still can't wait for Driveclub,just over a month away...
Capcom are too busy suing Tecmo to actually focus on games. How does this company still get people's money?
This is the 4th or 5th time Deep Down has been delayed. I keep saying its vaporware but people just don't listen. What other games have been delayed this many times and actually seen a release? http://wccftech.com/ps4-exc... If I can remember correctly this was to show off Capcom's new next gen engine for PS4 but got such rave reviews they decided to turn it into an actual game. There's barely any story or anything. Just little snippets here and there of game play. I think they are just making things up as they go along and it wont be that fun or have a good story. Just a good looking game, but i think you wont see this at all since Capcom has no money and this has been delayed for too long now draining much needed Capcom funds.
I rather the delay, everything in that last video has been upgraded. Let them continue to upgrade and perfect it. I rather this mentality than rushing it out to try and start selling $DLC$ and p2w microtransactions on an incomplete and buggy f2p game.
Lords of the Fallen looks fun. http://lordsofthefallen.com... You can play that while you wait, but it actually looks better then Deep Down IMO and it releases this October.
I just add 6 mths onto the release date, that way I never get disappointed plus it's a great surprise if it doesn't get delayed, simples.
Asian developers sure love to apologise for sh#t. Get it together bro!
