Earlier this year it was announced by XSEED Games that Rune Factory 4 would be hitting store shelves sometime this summer. However it seems that the company wants to make sure that the game is going to launch as polished as possible.
Over on Facebook an XSEED representative stated that “The game is absolutely massive and taking much longer to QA (play through the English for quality assurance) than we originally anticipated. Right now we could be looking at a late September or October release, but it will definitely be worth the wait.”
This means that although the title will end up missing the summer release window, a delay for quality assurance is always appreciated in a day where launch day patches are quite common.
