The next game from OlliOlli developer Roll7, cover-based shooter Not a Hero, will miss its previously announced PC release date of May 7 and will instead launch May 14, the developer announced today.

Not a Hero follows a "professional assassin turned amateur campaign manager" as he tries to clean up the city, per the request of mayoral candidate from the future, BunnyLord. According to the announcement, the week-long delay is for additional tweaks and testing on a tech update, "which brought the action from a dull and dreary 30fps to a pants tingling 60fps. It's like the game is licking your eyeballs now."

"Throughout the rigorous beta testing phase of Not A Hero, the most consistent feedback was to increase the frame rate to 59 frames per second," said producer Simon Bennett. "Well, we went a step further and took Not A Hero up to 60 frames per second. You're welcome."

Not a Hero is currently available to pre-order for Windows PC via SteamGOG and Humble Bundle.
