JoWooD Entertainment just sent us over a notice to let us know that their ArcaniA: Gothic 4 - Fall of Setarrif expansion pack will not meet its March 25th release date, and is in fact delayed indefinitely pending resolution of legal disputes. As you'll recall, JoWooD filed for bankruptcy at the beginning of this year and is currently embroiled in legal disputes with its financiers, which seem to be the background of this delay, though the press release does not clearly specify.
ARCANIA - FALL OF SETARRIF: DELAY DUE TO LEGAL UNCERTAINTY
Toronto, ON: March 23rd 2011; DreamCatcher Games and JoWooD announce the delay of the add-on (ArcaniA Fall of Setarrif.) The legal background of the official add-on to (ArcaniA - Gothic 4) is unclear and diverse legal positions with the BVT fund that financed the main game are present.
(It's uncertain whether the game can be released onto the market in its current form), explains Stefan Berger, Business Development Manager JoWooD, (Of course this must be investigated and settled before the release - unfortunately).
Due to this fact JoWooD officially announces, that the release of the Add-On has been set on hold and will be delayed indefinitely for now.
