Skullgirls Encore developer Lab Zero Games has announced today that the game will miss 2014, and is due for release early 2015 instead.
The developer announced this today in a post on the PS Blog.
The reason for the delay, according to the developer, is due to expanding the scope of the port. The game is still without a date, other than "early 2015."
It's not all bad news though, as Lab Zero has announced that Eliza, the third character from the studio's funded Indiegogo campaign, is coming to the PS3 version of the game today. As with other DLC characters for Skullgirls, the character can be download for free for three months, and it's yours to keep if you download it during that period. After that, it will be offered at a cost.
