Hawken’s release gets delayed, launch date becomes start of open beta instead

Hawken

By on December 7, 2012 at 10:21 am

Unfortunately, when you set your release date 10 months in advance, chances are it’s going to slip. That’s the lesson the Hawken dev team are taking home this Christmas, as they have announced that they will not be able to make their December 12 launch. Instead, December 12 marks the beginning of the Open Beta period.

“Open Beta is our chance to implement all the good feedback we’ve gotten from closed beta players on the forums, and deliver the changes the community wants to see,” said Co-founder and lead animator, Chris Lalli. “The community will really have the ability to shape the game and be part of its development.”

With this, they have also announced that the game’s pre-sale Vanguard Initiative will be ending tomorrow, so if you want in on that special release, now is the time to pick it up.

There is no new release date for the final version.
