As we try to continue our everyday lives as usual as possible, it’s sometimes easy to forget the world is in crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is still at large. A vaccine might be on the horizon, but we’re not out of this yet for the foreseeable future.
The pandemic challenges our lives to whole new levels. Working from home is now the ‘new normal’, with our social lives taking a toll. Collaborative projects or businesses that require people to come together are in danger. It has become increasingly difficult to create movies or games this way.
With these challenges in mind, developer Smilegate Entertainment has notified the world via tweet CrossfireX has been delayed to sometime in 2021. Moving the release date will allow the teams more time to develop the experience they set to create. Let’s all agree here the safety and health of the development team come first! This is the right call for everyone involved. Though, I’m eager to see what Remedy and Smilegate have been cooking.
