Eugen Systems announced that Steel Division 2 will be delayed until the 20th of June to gather more feedback and iron-out essential gameplay features.
According to the developers, the delay will help polished the single-player campaign mode, Army General, that wouldn’t be ready to be released on the 2nd of May. Also, it will be an opportunity for the developers to collect more critical feedback from the extended Beta testing.
If you have pre-ordered the game, you don’t have to wait for the official release as you can still play the ongoing beta testing. A new beta phase will start today and will run until the 23rd of April, and after that two more beta phases are planned to go live between 23rd of April and the game’s launch in June.
Steel Division 2 seeks to improve much more on what its predecessor, Steel Division: Normandy 44, had to offer and they are specially working on a better single-player campaign that focuses on player agency and room to fail and improve on those failures, rather than a list of scripted missions that restricted player input.
For now, it seems Eugen Systems is on the right track to develop a fantastic and realistic RTS game.
