Freedom Planet has been delayed yet again on the Wii U due to their latest patch not fixing all of the freezing issues that were present in the Wii U version. A new release date will not be announced until all the issues are resolved.
Steven DiDuro, who is one of the developers said the following message on the GalaxyTrail forums:
We received some sad news today: Our patch for the Wii U version of Freedom Planet didn’t fix all of the freezing issues. In light of this, we are cancelling our launch for the time being. We’re only going to announce a release date after the game is fixed and free of all issues not present in the PC version.
I understand that some fans out there were already upset at the last delay and that further delays would be the last straw, and to them I can only say that I’m sorry. I do not intend to deliver anything less than a 100% faithful and clean port, regardless of how long it takes.
If any of our new Wii U fans are interested in playing the PC/Mac/Linux version to tide them over, we’ll keep you updated on any sales or bundles we may be involved with in the future. We also have several extra announcements coming later this month including for our planned character DLC, so stay tuned.
We’re sorry again and thank you for your patience!
Sadly, looks like Wii U owners will have to wait a bit longer to get in on the action. Hopefully this issue is resolved before the end of the month.
