Windjammers 2 delayed to 2021

No longer due out in 2020.

Windjammers 2

Publisher and developer Dotemu has delayed Windjammers 2 from its previously planned 2020 release window to 2021. It will be available for Switch and PC via Steam.

Here is Dotemu’s full message on the delay:

Greetings everyone,

For the first time ever since its official reveal, Windjammers 2 was playable at Steam Summer Festival last June. Many of you jumped in this online event and we can’t thank you enough for answering the Windjammers 2 call. You shared a lot of positive feedback on the overall direction of Windjammers 2 (game design, gameplay, etc.) but also mixed opinions that caught our attention.

We analyzed in depth all these mixed opinions regarding some stuff including the lack of rollback for the online mode, which was unanimously praised in everyone’s feedback. We had to do something because Windjammers 2‘s online mode is also meant to encourage the competitive community to get into the game. We started to fix and add what was necessary. Nevertheless, these changes caused delays and as a result, forced us to postpone the release date to 2021.

This decision is a tough one and it has serious consequences for all of us but we think it’s fair enough if it allows us to give you the Windjammers 2 you expect and you deserve. Windjammers 2 is an ambitious project that we love and that we cannot ruin with wrong decisions that could jeopardize its quality.

We hope that you understand our decision and that despite the delay, you will enjoy this new adventure with family, friends, or rivals. We’ll give you news about the game more regularly (content, characters, stages, etc.) and we apologize for our silence which lasted far too long. The release date will be revealed in due time and whenever it’s set in stone, we’ll let you know.

Best regards,
Windjammers 2 Team
