Those of you excited for the release of Paradox Interactive and Romero Games’ upcoming Prohibition-era strategy game Empire of Sin are going to have to wait a little longer before forming their syndicates after it was announced yesterday that the release window will be shifting from Spring 2020 to Fall 2020.

Though this may come as a blow for gamers desperate to don their trilbys and take up a life of crime during the ‘glitz and glam’ of the roaring 20’s, a good reason seems to have been given. Check out what both Paradox CEO Ebba Ljungerud and Brenda Romero of Romero Games had to say about the change:

“We at Paradox Interactive, along with our partners at Romero Games, have an ambitious vision for Empire of Sin and decided together that more development time is needed”, said Ebba Ljungerud, CEO at Paradox. “This will allow us to deliver the game that our community deserves and meets our standards”.

“The challenges in making a game like no-one has made before is exactly that – making a game no-one has made before. It takes time to get everything right and presents us with some unique opportunities. I am grateful we are taking the additional time to polish”, said Brenda Romero of Romero Games. “The support and enthusiasm our community has shown thus far for Empire of Sin is incredible. We hope that once you’re let loose in Chicago and see the world we’ve created, you’ll believe it was worth the wait!”

Here’s the original Twitter post announcing the delay below:

Looks like for now we’ve just gotta keep polishing those Tommy guns, people.
