Kinect Star Wars was likely to be a winner for Microsoft this holiday season but the publisher has decided to delay releasing the title, apparently because its quality wasn’t up to scratch.
There’s no word on when the game will ship. That also puts on hold the “Star Wars” themed Xbox 360 console and controllers that were revealed last month.
“We elected to move the launch date beyond holiday to ensure we’re hitting the full potential of the title,” said Breanna Wilson, at Xbox PR firm Edelman. “The game isn’t being canceled outright, it’s more just to deliver the best game possible,” Wilson said.
A spokeswoman for LucasArts offered similar statements, saying “we remain committed” to making the best game possible.
