Previously, we were not aware of the allegations. We only found out on January 19, 2023, when we received a complaint from him and a request to contact him.
Now we find out all the circumstances of the accident and we will definitely solve everything.
We previously planned to post a lengthy gameplay video later this month, but we’ll have to work that out first. We will post a video as soon as possible.
As a result, we’ve made the difficult decision to push back the launch to November 10, 2023. We understand that this may disappoint many of our fans, but we want to make sure we release the best game possible.
Our focus remains 100 percent on the game itself and how to bring you the best possible game.
Thank you and we hope for your support.
