“We have decided to release the game on Xbox One, PS4 and PC during the first quarter of calendar year 2016.
All of us at Massive, Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment and Ubisoft Annecy want to ensure the game not only meets our high expectations but also those of our fans and players alike. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and can’t wait to show you more next month at E3!”
