Amazon Game Studios has once again delayed the New World release date and final beta test, this time to Spring of 2021. This comes about three months after the first delay from May to August.
The statement from Amazon says as much, adding that players have expressed that “they want more of it.” Apparently, the delay is giving Amazon more time to develop “middle and endgame experiences”.
You can read the complete statement from Amazon explaining the decision, but the language is a little vague. Basically, it sounds like the studio simply needs more time to add features and content before going into live development.
