After its recently concluded, and very successful, kickstarter campaign, developer Harebrained Schemes has greatly expanded the features list and as a result found it necessary to push the original January 2013 release date to a more vague "summer 2013."
Producer Mitch Gitelman made the following statement:
We’ve backed off our original delivery date of January 2013. It might’ve worked for the scope of the game we originally envisioned but as our ambitions (read that “features list”) grew, so did the time we needed to deliver! Plus, we made a big move from our original top down camera to an isometric point of view and that took serious R&D time. Right now, according to our estimates, we’re looking at May or June.
