Super Mega Baseball 2’s launch date has been postponed until 2018. The makers of the game delayed its release in order to have more time to refine the gameplay, implement more features and release it around the beginning of the Major League Baseball season.

Super Mega Baseball 2 is not coming this year

The sequel of Super Mega Baseball was initially scheduled for September 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Scott Drader, the lead developer, admits that the game’s development reached some “unexpected hurdles” and now this original release date is no longer available. On the other hand, the game may still be launched sometime in December like its predecessor was back in 2014, but according to Drader, creating enthusiasm for a sport out of season is not the kind of battle that they want to fight again. Baseball during winter time is a “tough sell,” and the best thing to do is to delay the game until 2018 when baseball is spinning up again.

More time to perfect the game

The good thing about delaying the release until 2018 is that it will give the team more time to revamp certain aspects of the game. So, the extra time will be used to keep working on a few features and pieces of content, such as additional art components and defensive shifts.

According to Drader, the game will have a public beta test along with enough time to adapt the finished product to the feedback it will receive and make it as close to perfect as possible.

All in all, all the fans’ disappointment for getting their hopes up for this September will result in a better game next year.
