Project Genesis release date delay has been announced practically at the last minute on the Friday before it was supposed to launch in Early Access on Steam.

Project Genesis is a pretty intriguing game that blends spaceship combat with a heart-pounding first-person shooter experience. It's been in closed alpha for several months and the developers were all set for a public release this weekend. Unfortunately, it looks like there's going to be a delay of several weeks.

"We were very excited to release Project Genesis on Steam for Early Access this weekend," 8 Circuit Studios' President James Mayo said in a press release. "Unfortunately, we found several significant issues that we just couldn't release with given our targeted quality bar, even though the game is still in a very early pre-alpha state. However, this delay will allow us to include some additional features that the community has been asking for, like improved weapons systems and a new map configuration."

While the launch date being pushed back is certainly disappointing, the devs are making up for it in a small way: they're giving away the game's soundtrack on Steam to everyone for free.
