Beautiful indie game 'Below' is delayed once again

This is the third time Capybara Games' latest effort has been pushed back.

If you're eager to play Super Time Force developer Capybara Games' latest title, Below, you're going to have to wait a bit longer. The atmospheric and ethereal indie game has been delayed once again, this time with no new release date. Below was originally supposed to come out this summer for Xbox One and PC, but Capy needs a little more time to make sure it meets the studio's high standards.

Below was first revealed back in 2013 and was one of the first indie titles to be showcased for the Xbox One. Since then it's had several different release dates, only to become another victim of the rising scourge of game delays.

Capybara is hardly the only victim. Kentucky Route Zero's fourth chapter was finally released this month after the series took an unexpected three-year hiatus. More big budget titles are also being affected. Final Fantasy XV's September 30th release date has been delayed to November, making it a little over 10 years since Square Enix first revealed it as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

Developers should definitely take their time. Delays can often be a good thing as they allow game makers to make last minute improvements that can turn a broken game into a great experience. But it does raise the question: is announcing a game years before it's close to being ready really a smart move?
