We already knew that the game was going to take longer than expected after it was announced that the game will be passed to Sumo Digital. The game has gone through so many hands that it would be impossible for it to meet the original deadline.
Most fans would be fine with an extra year of waiting but if the new rumor turns out to be true, the waiting time might be longer than a year. There are rumors saying that Sumo Digital threw out all the work that the previous developers have done and decided to start fresh.
It is believed that Sumo Digital will be coming out a new story and mechanics for the game. If this is the case, there is really no saying when the game will be ready. We still hope that it will be this year but that is looking less likely by the minute.
