Putting gamers in the cockpit of the most advanced war planes ever developed, Ace Combat 7 promises to deliver the fiercest air combat experience ever through photorealistic visuals, intense dog-fighting action, a multitude of authentic and futuristic aircraft to fly, and an immersive storyline.
"We would have loved to launch ACE COMBAT 7 at the end of 2017 as we originally intended, but doing so would compromise our goal for the game", Kono wrote.
"We take our art very seriously and that means we have instead chosen to devote additional time and effort to ideal and optimize this newest chapter of the ACE COMBAT saga", Kono said. We first understood that Ace Combat 7 would be a PSVR exclusive, but we later found out that Project Aces is building the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Bandai Namco also confirmed that Ace Combat 7's E3 presence next month will focus on "the non-VR missions that will make up most of the missions in the game".
On behalf of the entire Project ACES team, I want to thank you all for your patience and for your continued support. Originally, the game had been announced for a release by the end of this year. They want the game to be flawless when it reaches the hands of the Ace Combat series enthusiasts.
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe S.A.S. part of BANDAI NAMCO Holdings Inc.is a leading global publisher and developer of interactive content for platforms including all major video game consoles, PC and mobile. I had been looking forward to it as one of the more promising PlayStation VR-supporting games on the horizon.
According to Kazutoki, the current generation of consoles have opened up new possibilities for the game and to ensure that the final release features the best Ace Combat experience, the dev team chose to delay the game to 2018.
