The announcement stated that “we realised that some key moments [in the game] needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards”, adding, "we understand that this news is disappointing, but we are so close now, and we’re prepared to make the tough choices to get it right”.

For the most part fans have been supportive but even on the blog post announcing the delay there were less than charitable replies: 

There’s no word on the nature of the threats themselves but obviously it’s completely unacceptable at any level, joking or otherwise.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
