2K Games has pushed back the release date of Gearbox Software’s upcoming shooter Battleborn.
The game was originally supposed to launch in February, but the publisher recently announced that the game will now hit stores on May 3rd, 2016. The delay pushes the game out of parent company Take Two’s current fiscal year.
“We at Gearbox are feeling energized by the data of our Closed Technical Test, and the additional time will allow us to better act on the feedback for Battleborn competitive and cooperative play when it releases,” developer Gearbox wrote. “We sincerely appreciate your patience as we work tirelessly on Battleborn. We look forward to sharing the Open Beta with everyone next year.”
A closed technical test is currently underway for the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with plans to hold open beta testing in early 2016.
