Those among us with a little bit of culture will know that Alekhine’s Gun is a chess move named after former World Champion player, Alexander Alekhine. It is also the moniker of Maximum Games’ Hitman-esque Cold War stealth game that was due to be released this coming Tuesday, 10th of November.
I say ‘was’.
The studio have announced via their blog that the release will be postponed until the 9th of February 2016, and it would appear that the release of so many AAA titles at the same time would appear to be the main reason.
Maximum Games’ Andrew Nguyen;
We knew it would be a challenge to go up against AAA titles on Nov. 10th, and many of you warned us about that. But, we were excited about Alekhine’s Gun, and we were anxious to get it out to all the fans in time for the Holidays… We heard your concerns and also realised that we weren’t giving the title the comprehensive global launch it deserved, especially since a good many of our fans are overseas.
Alekhine’s Gun will now release, worldwide, on the 9th of February 2016, despite what the video below suggests.
