Polymega’s Launch Is Delayed Until Early Next Year

If you’re one of the many people who gleefully pre-ordered the Polymega two years ago, you’re probably wondering where your system is – especially as the revised launch window of November is already slipping away fast.

While Playmaji, the company behind the retro wonder-console, has already shifted the release more than once, it gave assurances that November would be the month – but it has remaining worrying silent on social media of late, triggering a host of conspiracy theories regarding the status of the console.

Playmaji has now broken its silence with a new-look website for the Polymega, as well as (yet another) revised release date and some more exciting news about upcoming features.

First up, the unpleasant news. The Polymega launch has been pushed into early 2021, with the site listing February as the proposed launch month. According to Playmaji, “a major retail partner of ours who has sold many systems has had ongoing issues communicating the status of the project to us, and has also moved release dates without notifying us.” Rumours swirling around online suggest the retailer in question in Walmart, which took the lion’s share of North American orders. The retailer has apparently gone silent on Playmaji.

Playmaji has hinted that, because it still isn’t known if Walmart will fulfil its orders, it cannot ship the units it has manufactured to other buyers. “We assume there will be a resolution to this problem in the next few weeks simply due to the nature, size, and reputation of the company,” the statement continues. “But barring some immediate turnaround / change in behavior, there will be likely project wide impact which will delay release into early 2021.” Playmaji has said it is happy for customers impacted by the delay to apply for a refund.
