Firefly Delays Stronghold: Warlords to Make Multiplayer Adjustments

Stronghold: Warlords is delayed so Firefly can polish up some last-minute multiplayer bugs.

Firefly Studios has delayed its upcoming strategy title, Stronghold: Warlords, until March 9. The developer and publisher originally planned a January 26 release for the latest Stronghold game, but unexpected problems put a wrench in those plans.

"The game's multiplayer mode simply isn't ready to be released yet," Firefly said in a statement on Twitter.

Firefly continued by saying:

While we have tried very hard to resolve these [issues] within our current deadlines, we need more time to iron them out. ... we did consider releasing as planned, delaying Multiplayer [sic] to go live in a future update. However, as we have promised Multiplayer functionality for Stronghold: Warlords at launch for over a year now, releasing without it wouldn't be fair to players.

We thoroughly enjoyed getting our hands on a playable demo in September, praising its intricate strategy and unique unit choices, and we're more than fine to wait just a bit longer for the full version. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Stronghold: Warlords news as it develops.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
