ATLAS, the pirate-themed MMO from Studio Wildcard, was slated to release on Early Access tomorrow. However, the game has been delayed to December 19 to “give the team more time to run through this massive game’s extensive content”.
Stuck in port
ATLAS was introduced less than a week ago during The Game Awards hype. The game involves getting into fistfights, killing monsters, looting booty, sailing the ocean blue, and ship-versus-ship combat. There’s also going to be ship building and the ability to form companies to claim land, similar to ARK. The good news it we’ll be able to check it out soon. The bad news is not as soon as we thought.
Studio Wildcard posted a tweet to the official ATLAS Twiter a few days ago:

The game’s official Steam page announced the delay:
After thinking carefully over the past several days, we’ve decided to delay the ATLAS launch until December 19th to give the team more time to run through this massive game’s extensive content.
It’s a vast virtual world out there across the ATLAS, and the team’s going to use that extra time to review every portion of it thoroughly. We’re sorry about the delay, and we know how much everyone is looking forward to establishing their empires!
The team here at Grapeshot is so excited to bring this new world to life with you, and we know it’s going to be an absolute blast. So please keep your powder dry a little bit longer, and at long last next Wednesday the 19th, we’ll be joining you on the most excellent adventure of our lifetimes!
See you on the ATLAS soon Pathfinders,
Jat, Jeremy, and Jesse
