Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded delayed until June

New, 2 comments

The launch of Kickstarter-funded retro remake Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is being delayed until late June, developer Replay Games announced.

According to an official statement issued by Replay (via CinemaBlend), the game's original May 31 release date is being pushed back to allow for "additional polishing."

"Larry Laffer is one picky guy and he won't stop preening himself until every hair looks pristine," reads the statement "In order to show Larry as the true Casanova he is, and provide the best possible Leisure Suit Larry experience for fans, Replay Games has decided to hold off the launch of Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded until late June for additional polishing."

Replay founder Paul Trowe took to the official website to explain the decision to ultimately delay, adding that bugs were the main contributing factor to missing the original launch date.

"Here's the problem, and thus this unscheduled Kickstarter update: due to the pure number of bugs found in the PC version alone (Mac version is being tested now,but not via Steam), we're having to delay the game, yet again, until the end of June," he wrote. "I can't tell you how many phone calls, arguments, and heart breaking conversations I've had with my advisors on this. I SERIOUSLY wanted this game out by the end of May because we've postponed it more times than Larry's been rejected. Ok, well, maybe not THAT many, but still....we've had some delays."

Replay Games initially shot for a May 31 launch on PC and Mac; however, release dates on Linux, iOS and Android remain unannounced.
