That’s ‘delayed’ to you and I
[Update: A new update from Mega Cat Studios states that WrestleQuest will now launch August 8 on PlayStation, PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and (newly announced) iOS and Android platforms.]
Skybound Games and developer Mega Cat Studios has announced that the colorful pro-wrestling RPG WrestleQuest will no longer meet its May release window and will now step into the ring sometime this summer.
In a shoot-worked promo posted to Twitter, Mega Cat Studios spoke of its excitement with the title so far, but notes that a recently secured “partnership” has forced the studio to push back the title’s launch. This seems to suggest that the delay is a positive one, and will allow the studio to implement whatever benefits the new partnership has allowed for. Mega Cat notes that it expects to announce a new release before May is done and dusted.

“While we are disappointed that we couldn’t share the entirety of WrestleQuest with you sooner like we hoped,” concludes the studio, “we firmly believe this is the right choice with respect to our players and the sweat, sweat, and more sweat we have poured into building the best game we have ever made. We can’t wait to get your hands on it!”
WrestleQuest, as we have previously reported, combines the wild spectacle of golden age wrestling with the stat-based strategy of turn-based RPGs. Players will guide custom superstars through the territory system of the 1980s, aided or hindered by a roster of over 30 real-world wrestlers including “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Koko B. Ware, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, The Road Warriors, Sgt. Slaughter, and Andre the Giant. Jeff Jarrett is also in the mix, because he can’t stay out of fucking anything.
WrestleQuest is currently in development for PlayStation, PC, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
