Disney has decided to push back the release date of Disney Infinity from June after a request from retail outlets.

The game has been rescheduled to August 18 in the U.S. and August 21 in Europe. Disney Interactive co-president John Pleasants revealed that the move was made at the request of retailers following a strong public reaction to the game’s announcement.

“The date became an issue in terms of them [retailers] asking, ‘is there a better opportunity here?'” he told The New York Times. “We think it’s good to be first and really lean into the most important selling season of the year.”

Pleasants added that the extra time will allow the development team to “add bells and whistles and make sure it really sings and pops.”
