The newest expansion to Rare's Sea of Thieves, Forsaken Shores, will be delayed about a week to ensure polish and that there's no post-launch hiccups, says Rare.
"Our priority is to ensure we deliver a stable, polished and bug-free experience that all our players can enjoy. We have just had a weekend of Pioneer testing, which has highlighted a memory issue in the build, which is resulting in an unstable build where a large number of our Pioneers were experiencing crashes," Rare executive producer Joe Neate writes in a new blog post.
As such Rare will be holding off on releasing Forsaken Shores by about a week, delaying the expansion to Thursday September 27 instead of releasing it on September 19 as originally planned.
Forsaken Shores is the third DLC for Sea of Thieves and features the new region Devil's Roar. This is one of the hardest areas in Sea of Thieves and the constant threat of a volcano eruption means that only high-level pirates will be able to face this new content.
