Bushi Delays Official Game Launch & Battlepass NFT Mint to June 14th
The official launch of third-person shooter Bushi and the minting of its Battlepass NFT have all been delayed to Wednesday, June 14th, due to an unforeseen networking issue for the former, and an unexpected issue in smart contract delivery date on the latter.
The team behind Bushi, a third-person competitive shooter in development in Unreal Engine 5 for the Sui Network, has officially announced the delay of the game’s official release, as well as the mint date for the Battlepass NFT, moving both anticipated events over to Wednesday, June 14th.
The Battlepass NFT is described as being the “first ever fully dynamic Battlepass NFT’ to be launching on the aforementioned Layer 1 blockchain, with the NFT featuring 70 levels of “hard-fought progression” alongside more than 20 in-game items. It was initially scheduled to launch on June 1st on Clutchy, a gaming and NFT marketplace on Sui, but the developers have had to delay the mint date by 2 weeks due to encountering “unexpected issues in our smart contract delivery date.” In an effort to put security as their number one priority, the team has decided to wait for the full auditing process to finish before commencing the mint.
As for the game itself, the reason behind the delay stems from an unexpected networking issue that made players get kicked out of matches as well as prevent them from joining lobbies. While a solution to the problem has been found, the team needs more time to make sure everything is working properly for a full release.
