Sony Computer Entertainment have this week announced a delay in the release schedule of their third-person action-adventure video game The Order: 1886. A collaboratively developed project from the minds of both Ready At Dawn and SCE Santa Monica Studio, The Order's narrative depicts a semi-dystopian alternative version of human history in which our race has been diminished by relentless onslaughts from fantastical monsters and an ancient league of knights must battle to end their foes' tyranny.
As we slowly but surely begin to learn which next-generation (and current-generation, though their ranks are gradually fading these days) titles are set to launch on which release dates later this year, it's only natural that we simultaneously discover which projects won't quite make their projected late 2014 release window. Despite having been in development for nearly half a decade now, news on Ready At Dawn's latest product has been scarce to say the least in recent months, and thus its latest development setback doesn't come as a shock so much as a welcome update on how proceedings are progressing at Santa Monica, even if said proceedings aren't going completely according to plan. Look for more news on The Order towards the end of the year, but don't fret, as Sony are sure to reveal a host of substitute PS4-exclusive titles at E3 2014 next month so as to compensate for our temporary loss.
The Order: 1886 will take up arms exclusively on PlayStation 4 in 2015.
