Creative director Alex Ward confirmed the delay to VideoGamer after a change in the game's release window was found in New Scientist's coverage. When Dangerous Golf was first announced, it had a May release window.

Three Fields Entertainment is a studio founded in 2014 by Criterion founders Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward. Dangerous Golf is its first title.

"This isn't your average golf game," the developers previously said about it. "It's as serious a golf game as Burnout was a serious simulation to driving games.

"We wanted to mix the attitude of Burnout with the destruction of Black (a 2004 first-person shooter from Criterion) whilst setting the golf ball on fire--a nod to NBA Jam. This type of gameplay is part of our DNA, and something we think our fans will truly enjoy."

Dangerous Golf tasks players with trying to do as much "dollar damage" possible instead of putting the ball in the least amount of shots. To help with the destruction, the golf ball can be turned into a bomb and detonated as part of a "SmashBreaker."

"Destructive powers increase as the ball heats up, ensuring that the most elaborate shots are not only the most rewarded, but the most impressive to watch," the developer explained.

Dangerous Golf is being developed using Epic's Unreal Engine 4 and some Nvidia technology to "push the boundaries" of destruction and physics.

Dangerous Golf will launch on PC, Xbox One, andP layStation 4. Pricing was not announced. Three Fields has also another, unannounced game in the works.
