Since last night it is known that the release of New World will be postponed to give the developers more time to polish the game and fix bugs they found during the beta.
The new release date is set to the 28th September 2021.
A bad start of a game has a much worse effect, compared to a postponement of the release date. Best example provided here is Wolcen, which had enormous potential but was released too early.
So get ready, because starting on 09/28, Aeternum will be conquered.
