From Game Spot:
Amazon’s long-awaited MMO New World has been delayed. The game was originally scheduled to launch in Spring 2021, but it’s now slated for August 31, 2021.
“We’ve been hard at work on compelling end-game features we believe are important to include at launch,” Amazon said in a blog post. “These features won’t be ready for the Spring timeframe that we had communicated. With that in mind, we will release New World on August 31, 2021. With this extra time we’ll be able to add these substantial improvements while polishing and fine tuning the whole game before we open Aeternum’s shores to the world.”
The alpha for New World will continue and Amazon plans to expand it by adding more EU servers on March 30, 2021. A closed beta is scheduled
