ShootMania Storm suffers last minute delay
Competitive online shooter pushed back a few months
Ubisoft has announced a late delay for the upcoming PC shooter, ShootMania Storm.
Originally scheduled to arrive this week (tomorrow, in fact), will now be released on April 10. Also, starting February 12, the game will enter an Open Beta phase allowing the developers to receive more feedback from the community.
“Nadeo’s model of development has always been to be very close to the community,” said Anne Bondel-Jouin, Managing Director of Nadeo Live. “Following the release of the Beta 2 in December, we received a tremendous amount of information from the very active ShootMania community. For a living, online multiplayer title like this the work is never done, but these extra few weeks will allow us to polish the game further and release it to the level of quality we think our players deserve.”
Developed by Ubisoft’s Nadeo studio, ShootMania Storm follows the footsteps of TrackMania, Nadeo’s successful arcade racing game. To date, players have created more than 15 game modes and, already, more than 20,000 maps have been created by players using ManiaPlanet’s proprietary map editor.
