Microsoft has responded to the delay of the Xbox release of Black Myth: Wukong by suggesting something is up

Microsoft has responded to the delay of the Xbox release of Black Myth: Wukong by suggesting something is up

As we mentioned earlier, the action game is inspired by Soulslike Black Legend: Wukong It has been delayed to a date to be determined on Xbox Series X|S, while the PC and PS5 versions will arrive in August 2024.

The reason for this choice is officially related to the fact that the Game Science team is still working on improving the game on Xbox Series. The authors also promise that they want to make the wait as short as possible.

WindowsCentral therefore decided to investigate the matter, and asked the development team and Microsoft to comment in more detail on the situation. Behind the scenes, it’s said that the studio delayed the Xbox release because it simply wanted delay, not optimization issues.

Microsoft responded to the American newspaper with the following statement: “We are excited to bring Black Myth Wukong to Xbox Series holders, but we remain focused on making Xbox the best platform for gamers, and great games are at the heart of that goal.” “

The part that immediately stands out is… “We cannot comment on the agreements our partners have with other platform owners.”. WindowsCentral also states that there were no questions from the newspaper about agreements between Game Science and other companies. Microsoft voluntarily included these details in its response.

However, this is related to some recent rumors, according to which Game Science has signed a time exclusivity agreement with Sony for Black Myth: Wukong. If this is true, WindowsCentral says, it would be a strange situation, because it would arise after confirmation from the reference platforms (those agreements are usually made first).

It’s hard to know what’s actually going on, but in any case we hope Xbox players won’t have to wait long, and even if it does, what other game on Xbox and Game Pass won’t definitely make players miss it or too soon.
