It seemed “Mighty No. 9” was only a month away before release. But now the developer, Comcept, has confirmed the delay for the “Mega Man” successor and is planning a release sometime in 2016. There were already talks of the title’s delay, but publisher Deep Silver declined to comment prior to the announcement.

Fans were informed of the game’s delay via the project’s Kickstarter, where the developer expounded on the bugs affecting the gameplay. According to Comcept, the glitches would seriously affect the enjoyment of the gameplay experience, forcing them to delay the title.

GameSpot stated that the game’s delay isn’t too surprising, especially with product pages, like Amazon, listing it with a different release date. Fans can only hope that they won’t have to wait too long for the “Mega Man” successor.

While the news is a bit disappointing to fans who were hoping the game would come out next month, it was a necessary move to make for developer Comcept and publisher Deep Silver. Considering how games like “Assassin’s Creed Unity” and “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” were heavily criticized for being rushed out too early, delaying the game is definitely the lesser of two evils.

Still, some good news came from the game’s delay. After finding out that fans wanted “Mighty No. 9” in other gaming platforms, Comcept announced that a new platform survey would be released sometime after an official launch date has been settled on, widening the game’s reach even more.

Currently, “Mighty No. 9” is coming out for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, 3DS and PS Vita. Despite not having been released yet, there are already plans for a live-action “Mighty No. 9” movie, as Legendary Pictures recently acquired the rights to make one.
