Release of Amplitude Postponed for PS3 and PS4

The upcoming rhythm-action title, which was initially scheduled for release in March, is now postponed to debut this summer.

"This is our first time working on PlayStation 4, and it's been a big learning experience for the team," said Harmonix in an update on Kickstarter.

"We've put a lot of work into our proprietary engine to support some of the new, awesome content we're bringing to the reboot. These factors combined have bumped production out a few additional months."

In addition, the developer stated: "In a traditional scenario, we're sometimes tasked with shipping a game to meet publisher demands or in some cases, meet a deadline to make sure the game is available to be purchased during the busy holiday season.”

"In these cases, developers have to re-evalute production needs and make difficult calls to meet deadlines, including removing or shrinking features and – in the worst cases – sacrificing quality in other areas."

In May, last year, Amplitude hit its funding goal of $775,000 on Kickstarter.

The game features players control a Beat Blaster ship, hitting notes in colour-coded tracks which represent the current song and capturing successive musical phrases to reach high scores.
