We’ve only just begun 2015, and already the delays are starting to roll in. Luckily, the first major one isn’t that long of a wait with Dragon Ball Xenoverse only adding an extra week onto its initial release date.
Originally, Bandai Namco scheduled to release the game on Feb. 17 in North America, but that has since been pushed back to Feb. 24. Likewise, Europe was proud to finally be getting a game before the Americas, but that dream has been destroyed with a two week delay pushing the release from Feb. 13 to Feb. 27.
Bandai Namco claims that the delay was needed “in order to ensure the highest possible gameplay experience for our fans.”
One week to work out bugs? Highly unlikely. One week to push it out of direct competition with Resident Evil Revelations 2? Maybe a more likely story. Either way, the wait is not that long or heart-breaking, so no need to get upset.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on Feb. 17.
