Mega Cat’s love letter to both pro wrestling and old-school role-playing games, WrestleQuest, will now be released on August 22. Mega Cat and publisher Skybound Games announced the astonishing postponement barely three hours before the game’s planned August 8 release date.
Mega Cat explained that the delay was caused by a significant technological malfunction. “When performing final checks on one of our launch platforms, we discovered that it was possible for players to lose their save game progress when playing WrestleQuest on multiple different devices.”
WrestleQuest will be available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC through Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and mobile devices via the Netflix app.
“Because this is a game with hours of content and player progress is so important, we could never bodyslam our fans like that,” Mega Cat went on to say. The main quest line of WrestleQuest is believed to be 40 hours long, with dozens more hours implied by its various activities.
WrestleQuest has been in the works for approximately four years and is Mega Cat’s 11-year-old Pittsburgh-based company’s most ambitious project ever. Mega Cat creator James Deighan and head of studio Zack Manko, as well as wrestling superstars Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Sgt. Slaughter, and Jeff Jarrett, recently appeared on a panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
