Bad news for all the Paragon refugees. Its spiritual successor known as Core has been delayed by the studio behind. Metabuff Studios took to their official Facebook to release a long apology letter and announcement of the delay. If you’re too lazy to read it all the gist of it was they have standards. They don’t just want to put something out. They want to put something out that gives you the nostalgia of Paragon but also improves upon things.
Quality is their focus. It was hard for them to deliver that quality in just one year. Their original plan was to release a playable alpha with 15 heroes on the anniversary of the shutting down of Paragon. It was their way of sticking it to Epic Games. Sadly that goal was too much, so they’ve delayed the game with no new release date. It was a tough pill to swallow, but it is what it is.
They promised this delay will be worth the wait because they’re holding themselves to a high standard. If you would like to read the full letter, then click here. Admittedly I was ready to give on this game. Seemed like another hopeless dream, but Metabuff was smart enough to make this announcement, then drop some new content from the game. A new dev diary was uploaded to their YT channel revealing the games UI. I have to admit it’s clean. Especially the For Honor intro into battles. Check it out below.
