Mobster strategy title Empire of Sin has been delayed, developer Romero Games has confirmed.
“The challenges in making a game like no-one has made before is exactly that – making a game no-one has made before,” said game director Brenda Romero. “It takes time to get everything right and presents us with some unique opportunities. I am grateful we are taking the additional time to polish.
“The support and enthusiasm our community has shown thus far for Empire of Sin is incredible,” she added. “We hope that once you’re let loose in Chicago and see the world we’ve created, you’ll believe it was worth the wait!”
Ebba Ljungerud, CEO at publisher Paradox, also said the delay “will allow us to deliver the game that our community deserves and meets our standards”.
Announced at E3 2019, Empire of Sin focuses on the glitz, glamour and criminal underworld of Prohibition-era Chicago in the 1920s.
Features include building your own criminal empire, defending and expanding your territory, and wielding your influence to make and break alliances, all of which can be achieved in multiple ways.
