Those of you hoping to play Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA on PC are going to have to wait a little bit longer. The message below was posted by NIS America on the game's Steam page, letting people who pre-ordered the game that there would be delays int he game's release as they wanted to work on the quality of the game. On the one hand, you got a developer admitting the game isn't up to snuff and are working to make sure you got a good game upon release. On the other hand, you now have a company that promised a specific release date and couldn't meet it. As you can see below, no new release date was given so you probably shouldn't expect it until late 2017 or early 2018.
We regret to inform everyone that the release date for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA on PC has been pushed back due to continued efforts in improving gameplay quality.
We sincerely apologize to our fans who have been looking forward to this release. Ultimately, our goal is for fans to enjoy a high-quality game. We are providing the extra care in the PC development of the game by taking time to enhance the overall quality of gameplay.
