Remember when we told you about the awesome remastered version of Star Wars Episode 1 Racer that was due out for the Switch? Well, it was due out on May 12th, but it was canceled HOURS before release.

Just when everyone was getting hyped, late on Monday night developer Aspyr announced the game had been delayed for an undefined period due to disruption caused by remote working.

“We are so excited to share Star Wars Episode l: Racer with you soon! Unfortunately, due to the ongoing work from home requirements across the industry, the game will be further delayed on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. We’ll be back with an update as soon as possible.”

The PS4 version of Episode 1 Racer was previously delayed until May 26.

Die hard fans can get the old game from Amazon

This is another unfortunate consequence of the state of the world today, with the pandemic.

When it comes to remote working, there are many things that can be done safely and easier for everyone involved. But there are some jobs, across all industries, that just can't be done from home. That's likely what happened here - something essential that was needed for the game launch simply couldn't be done from remote work.

Of course, there's always the chance that something more happened - like a key person working on the project got sick - because if they knew they just weren't making the deadline, you'd think they would have rescheduled it much sooner.

Despite the disappointment, we want to try to stay positive and supportive during this time. It's causing hardship for many right now and we want to try to be as understanding as we can.

Do we want our games? YES!

Do we want our game updates? YES!

Do we understand that this is a difficult time we are all navigating for the first time ever and that unexpected things will happen? YES!

We'll give you any updates on the new release date as we know them.
