While some might say MAIET isn’t exactly the fastest gun in the west, they’ve finally set their sights on a US open beta release date for their highly anticipated third-person shooter GunZ 2: The Second Duel. Although the open beta has been available for an extended amount of time in Europe, early February is the new ETA.
Supposedly Valve is to blame for the prolonged delay. “As we finished our Early Access program preparation last week, we have been waiting for completion of Valve’s game review process.” stated MAIET Games. “We did not expect this to take this long. We’re currently working with Valve to finish the review process and set a release date for GunZ 2. However, we had to postpone it to February because of the Lunar New Year’s day holiday (1/30~2/1) in Korea, where MAIET office is located.”
The team did seem quite understanding about the the outcry from US fans, saying ““Again, we apologize about the delay but we promise to launch the game soon in early February.”
