Sony’s upcoming third-person shooter “The Order: 1886” will be delayed until early next year.
Sony (NASDAQ:SNE) announced that the PlayStation 4 title, which was originally set to launch later this year, is being developed by Irvine, California-based Ready at Dawn Studios.
The single-player action-adventure title is set in an alternate history where an ancient order of knights is responsible for keeping the world safe from half-human, half-animal monsters. Set in the 19th century, the story focuses on the war between King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table engaging in battle with the monsters. A newly discovered supernatural substance called black water allows the knights to heal themselves and extend their lives.
"As we look to bring this experience to the players, we have decided to spend some extra time to deliver on the promise we made when we first introduced the game," a Sony representative told Polygon. "As such, you can expect "The Order: 1886" to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015."
The title has been in development since 2010 and will be produced by SCE Santa Monica Studio. “The Order: 1886” was announced during the Electronic Entertainment Expo last June.
