Shrapnel
Games announced today that the gold and ship date of
it’s
upcoming 4X space conquest game, Space Empires: IV, have
been

1st,
2000 and the ship date has been moved to October 23rd, 2000.

Richard
Arnesen, Director of Covert Operations for Shrapnel
Games,
said, "Since this game has entered internal QA we have
had
numerous requests for added features and tweaks which have
required
additional testing to balance out the game. While we
could
have possibly made our September 1 gold date we thought
it
would be a good idea to give our testers an additional month
to
work out every bug and to make sure every possible
consideration
is given to play balance and added features.
Overall
it means a much better product for our customers, which
I
think is the most important thing."

waiting
