Sega has introduced that their forthcoming come back to stunning sci-fi action fantasy, Phantasy Star Online 2, has been postponed into 2012, reports Siliconera. The reason of the postpone, as per maker Satoshi Sakai, is to tackle gameplay matters brought to light by consumer suggestions posted after the final result of this summer’s alpha testing.
A 2nd alpha test will be conducted a while during the 1st part of next yr; coming back alpha testers will be joined by latest recruits in order to evaluate the modifications made according to their suggestions. Delays can be a double-edged sword, but when a firm particularly cites addressing customer suggestions as a delay’s validation, that is commonly a great sign.
Not that any of us will ever in fact get to play it, mind you. After all, it’s a Japanese exclusive.
