Mercenary Kings holds launch until 2014, Vita remote play is a go

Mercenary Kings is due out on Steam and PS4 in early 2014, despite Tribute Games' attempts to finish it up before the end of the year. Tribute says Mercenary Kings is content complete right now, but the team wants to polish up all that running and gunning before launch, and it's taking a few extra months. The game's previous launch window was "this winter," which technically spills into 2014 anyway – still, Tribute is apologetic.

"Again, we'd like to thank you for your patience. We do not take lightly the privilege of having people be excited about the game and asking us about it every day on social media! We're working really hard to get it in the best possible shape and in your hands early 2014."

To offer a silver lining of the delay, Tribute reveals that Mercenary Kings will support remote play on Vita at launch. Remember, this is the studio behind Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Wizorb, and those both turned out pretty brilliantly, so we'll give Tribute a few more months to deliver a great game. This time.
