PS4-exclusive The Order: 1886 delayed to 2015

Ready at Dawn pushes its upcoming third-person action game to next year; check out some new footage now.

by

Upcoming PlayStation 4 third-person shooter The Order: 1886 has been delayed to 2015, developer Ready at Dawn has announced. Previously, the game was expected to launch sometime this fall.

"As we keep on pushing on this game, we really want to deliver on the experience that we promised, and because of that, the game is slated for release in early 2015," Ready at Dawn CEO and creative director Ru Weerasuriya told GameSpot.

The Order: 1886 is set in an alternate version of Victorian Era London where common folk go about their daily lives with no understanding that "a threat to their very existence" is brewing in the background. You play as a Galahad, a member of a group of Knights.

As you can see in the new gameplay footage above, Galahad can use "Blackwater," a mysterious substance that can heal him from otherwise deadly wounds. Players can also make use of what is called "Blacksight," a heightened gameplay state that allows you to better focus on executing precise attacks.

For more on The Order: 1886, check out GameSpot's previous coverage, including our latest preview published just minutes ago.

Any game can take all the time it needs as long as it doesn't have any real bugs when released. I applaud when companies take extra time.

Greatness awaits... In the meantime Sony has all this network content they want to sell you.

Everybody complained about the gameplay trailer and all you people are surprised about the delay? I guarantee you all the hype from the trailer caused this delay. Nice going egg heads. I'm cool with it though. Sucks to wait, but get the game right.

It's the PS3 game release debacle all over again.

So much promises and no delivery.

Only one exclusive AAA release this year...really?

I love how these 'bombs' are dropped on the day of a big release . Not yesterday or tomorrow, but today. It's as if Sony is shielding itself thinking you'll pay no mind to their problems now that you're playing 'something'.

Classic marketing trick.

I thought this game might be delayed.  I hope the extra time allows them to make it great.  Too many games seem to be released too early with bugs and other issues these days.

Haha delay station.This game is possibly in early stages of becoming vaporware.Good ol Sony announce games to create some hype and then delay them or never release them at all.

@triton1977 You do remember that they delivered Infamous, Final Fantasy 14 and MLB this year too right?  Also, I'm going to bet that Quantum Break doesn't hit this year either.

@triton1977 Exclusive to me are only important over the life of the console. Its not like in the first year I am barred from playing games like Destiny and Watch Dogs because they are multi platform. Besides Xbox one so far has only had Titanfall, with Second Son for sony, in even waters imo.
