The latest update for massively multiplayer online tank-battler World of Tanks has been delayed for further bug-fixes and polishing, developer Wargarming.net confirmed today.
"Release of 8.0 initially scheduled for RU region for this week was postponed, which naturally affects release dates for other regions as well," producer D.Y., also known as Overlord, posted on his blog today.
The delay is due to several major issues, such as an FPS drop glitch and desktop crashes during cosmetic altering of tanks. Problems already addressed include sounds shutting off when switching tanks, expansion of the post-battle statistics window to eliminate scrolling, and problems exiting the hangar after battle while players have the chat window open.
World of Tanks 8.0 will add a new rendering engine and will completely overhaul of many of the game's classic maps.
