Basement Crawl

Bloober Team has delayed the release of their PlayStation 4 download game Basement Crawl from its originally planned launch this week.

The game is still scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2014, though a new release date was not announced.

“While the completed version of Basement Crawl was prepped for launch during the last week, several exciting opportunities to partner with major industry players to enhance, refine and add-to the game arose,” said Piotr Babieno, CEO, Bloober Team.

“Although a difficult decision, we decided that the best choice for us, as a team, was to delay Basement Crawl so that we could take full advantage of these opportunities. We will be able leverage those new partnerships to further grow and improve the game while still providing an amazingly fun multiplayer experience for PS4 owners. We’ll be able to announce more details in the days and weeks to come.”

    God dammit, I really want this game badly (as you can tell by my username), but the delays are beginning to try my patience! Every time I have friends over I get excited about it being released, and the possibility of re-living some bomberman fun, but evey time it gets pushed back!

    My guess: MS offered them free self-publishing on XBone, or other tempting incentive (cash), but required same day or earlier release as PS4. So they had to delay it.

      You think they can make a working XB1 port and still have a Q1 release?

    • BlooberTeam

      It has nothing to do with Microsoft ;)

        A Vita port? If it’s a Vita port my head would explode from the excitement.

    Aww, i guess the wait continues. Hopefully, it would be worth the wait
