Those looking forward to the upcoming zombie title Amy will have to wait, as the developers have delayed the game till Fall 2011.
“For many reasons, we have decided to postpone the release date of Amy to Fall 2011 in order to launch it properly,” said VectorCell via Amy’s official Facebook.
“Basically, the outage is not the only reason. We initially wanted to launch the game 3 weeks later than announced but we discussed a lot internally and we don’t want Amy to be released with too many games at the same time on the PSN and we fear that summer might be a bad time, especially in Europe.”
“We’re currently working with Sony on a schedule. We’ll be announcing a few (good) things as soon as we have enough visibility.”
Amy is an innovative survival horror title that uses creative cooperative gameplay mechanics encompassing both characters in the game. According to the developers, the AI is very intelligent with enemies being able to share information and experiences with one another, devising attacks plans and ways to flank players. Originally the game was scheduled to release exclusively for the PlayStation Network in June, however with the delay, developers will have more time to polish the title and prepare in terms of marketing.
