The lights are on
In a post on the Age of Wonders III official website, Triumph Studios community manager Jimmy van der Have delivered the news that the game will see a slight delay.
When the game was announced in Februay, in was slated for a late 2013 release window, but an exact date was never specified. There is still no exact date, but the game won't be releasing until the first quarter of 2024. In the online posting, van der Have said, "Age of Wonders III is the largest game in the series and with the additional polish we hope we can give you an even better experience!"

Our TakeConsidering the game never had and continues to lack a locked release date, this delay feels especially minor. The game moved from Q3 2013, to Q1 2014, so Age of Wonders fans won't have to wait too much longer than they were already.

there site says Q1 of 2014 not 2024
First time I've heard of this game, so i looked it up and now saddened that its delayed :(
Seriously doubt they would delay a game by 10 years. But who knows maybe that's the new thing for video games now.
2024, brace yourselves everyone!
I don't know if i remain the game until that day
Holy ... 2024 :D
Crap, I thought I read Age of Empires in the title and got excited
Somehow in someway, I blame Notch for this.
kyle! bad typo! ....... thats fine i loved age of wonders when i was young but its been a long time , for something like this i can wait a bit longer
Thats a pretty sweet picture. Just sayin
Boy talk about a delay. What happened? Did the company decide to just put everyone on vacation and stop making the game for a few years and then come back rush it and release ten years down the road. Just to beat Duke Nukem's record of being worse waited game in history????
....or just someone did not proofread first. Internet I hate thee some times.
"[...] the game won't be releasing until the first quarter of 2024."
Quite a delay, Kyle.
considering how amazing AOW1, AOW2 and AOW2: SM were, i am definitely okay to wait a few months for this new installment. hell, i've waited over six years so what's a few months going to do?? glad to hear everything is going well for Triumph
