Microsoft has today announced that Kinect Star Wars will not be released during the holiday 2011 period.
The delay also applies to the limited edition Star Wars Xbox 360 bundle, which was scheduled to be released around the same time as the game.
Speaking to OXM UK, Microsoft gave the following statement:
“Microsoft and LucasArts have elected to move the launch of Kinect Star Wars beyond holiday 2011 to ensure the full potential of this title is realized. This move applies to both the Kinect Star Wars stand-alone game and the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Console. We will communicate additional timing information at a later date.”
Whilst some gamers might be left a little disappointed, today’s announcement comes as no surprise after the not so positive previews Kinect Star Wars received. The decision must have been a tough one though, as this now means both the game and console bundle won’t be able to purchase during the sales mad Christmas period.
