New World Delayed
The New World closed beta was pretty popular, according to the Amazon Games. Over a million people participated in the Closed Beta, and they played over 25 million hours combined. It is safe to say people are interested in New World.

With all this success in the Closed Beta, there is a downside. To implement changes that players want and fix bugs, New World is being delayed to September 28.
Amazon Games sure do have a hard time actually releasing, but New World looks like it will actually launch, and if the Closed Beta is any indicator, it should launch to some success. Amazon will have to prove they can launch and support a game for fans in the long term.
