Wizardry Online launch date pushed back to Jan. 30

Wizardry Online, Gamepot and Sony Online Entertainment's hardcore free-to-play MMORPG, will miss its original Jan. 16 launch date, and will instead arrive Jan. 30, the publisher announced today.

The delay will allow the developer to add some final polish to the title before it goes live — polish that would have been a tight squeeze between the close of the game's beta on Jan. 14 and its original launch date two days later.

"As we head into final preparations for launching the game, we have decided to move the launch date of Wizardry Online to January 30, 2013 in order to allow us extra time to ensure we're delivering the most epic gameplay experience possible to our players," a press release from the two companies reads.

Those anxiously awaiting the game's new release date will be able to find new information on the title on the game's forums over the coming days.
