The PlanetSide Arena battle royal game was originally expected to launch in January 2019 but its launch has slowly been slipping backwards and has now slipped even further back to the summer months of 2019 for both the PlayStation 4 and PC versions, Daybreak games have this week confirmed.
For those unfamiliar with PlanetSide Arena DayBreak is creating an ambitious Battle Royale game using the assets from the Planetside 2 game to create a “massive-scale, match-based, sci-fi arena shooter.” Offering battles of 250 vs 250 during which players can even play solo or team up.
“First off, a huge thank you to everyone who participated in our Closed Beta these past few weeks. Your suggestions have been crucial in providing our team with direct and meaningful gameplay feedback. We can’t even begin to express our appreciation for all of the time and effort you’ve spent helping us test and improve the game.
After much consideration, we’ve decided to postpone the current PC-only release date and launch simultaneously across PC and PlayStation 4 this summer. We’ve always envisioned PlanetSide Arena as a way for players to experience the epic gameplay of the PlanetSide universe, through fast-paced, combined arms combat and massive-scale multiplayer modes. We believe that delivering the most polished version of PlanetSide Arena that meets these expectations, on both platforms, outweighs any other consideration.
In light of our revised launch plan, we are refunding all Planetside Arena pre-orders. We’re committed to continuing and expanding our Beta testing program as we ramp-up for our multi-platform launch this Summer and will share more details soon.”
