The Xbox One version is still coming this week

The Definitive Edition of Ori and the Blind Forest will be released this week on Xbox One, but developer Moon Studios is holding back the Windows PC version for a bit, publisher Microsoft Studios announced today.

"Yes, we did announce a release date of March 11th," said Mark Coates, executive producer on the game at Microsoft Studios. "But to make sure everyone who plays Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition gets a great experience regardless of platform, we're taking a bit of extra time with the Windows Store and Steam versions."

The Xbox One version of the Definitive Edition will still be released March 11, the one-year anniversary of the original game's debut.

Microsoft also confirmed pricing today. The Definitive Edition of Ori and the Blind Forest will be available on its own for $19.99, the same price at which the base game launched a year ago. People who already own the game can upgrade to the Definitive Edition for $4.99.

Moon Studios originally revealed the Definitive Edition at Gamescom 2015, and planned at the time to release it during the holiday season. The company announced in December that it had delayed the project to spring 2016, so this week's Xbox One release comes in slightly ahead of the new schedule.
