Mars: War Logs was released in late April on PC and the console versions were to follow soon, however, developer Spider Studio held off onthe release in order to fix English localization issues which plagued the PC release.
According to Luc Heninger, director of production for the game’s publisher, Focus Home Interactive, the actual game was “thoroughly tested and released with very few bugs on PC,” but the procedures for the audio and text QA failed and allowed many English localization issues to slip through.
“The result was so far removed from what we usually produce that we took the decision to halt the submission process for the console version, which was due for release only weeks after the PC title,” he said.
“We have re-written the game text and dialog and, of course, recorded the actors again, replacing the sections that weren’t true to the characters in Mars. All these problems will therefore be fixed in the console version. ”
An update is now available for players with the PC game, which also incorporates the new audio in the version.
