Wreckfest delayed until 2019 on PS4 and XB1
THQ Nordic and Bugbear announced that Wreckfest will not be making its planned release on November 20, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It has instead been delayed until some time in 2019.
Anti-bullshit quote: "Wreckfest for consoles will only be released as soon as we love playing it. After the fantastic release on PC, the benchmark for the console release is much higher. At this moment, the team needs more time to polish the multiplayer part, as well as the overall performance on the game to bring it up to par with the experience on PC. We are sorry for keeping fans waiting longer because of this. However, we already have compensation in the form of further vehicles, including a special crazy vehicle, in the works for consoles. " - says Roger Joswig, Senior Producer at THQ Nordic.

I'm glad they clarified that it was an "anti-bullshit quote." I included that so that you, the reader, know that it was indeed an "anti-bullshit quote" from THQ's Roger Joswig. Hell, they even included a handy "tl;dr" for you.
Subject: Release delay for Wreckfest on consoles

If you don't feel like waiting, you can still pick up Wreckfest for the PC via Steam. It's received "mostly positive" reviews from nearly 8,000 reviewers. It's a rather solid game so even if you do continue to wait for the console release, you'll be in for a good time.
