The online role playing game Ember Sword has delayed its land sale. The event will now take place ‘a few weeks past the end of the first quarter’. That would be late April at the earliest, but probably somewhere in May. Bright Star Studios didn’t provide a reason for the delay, except that the decision was made ‘in favor of the sale being the best experience they can make it’.
The Ember Sword team didn’t provide a new date for the land sale, but emphasized that it’s not far off. Their next update about the land sale is expected to happen somewhere in mid-April.
