Original story: Zynga and NaturalMotion's Dawn of Titans has finally launched worldwide after 21 months in soft launch.

The game was originally soft-launched on March 11th 2015. It received 23 updates throughout this period, with at least two of these bringing in massive changes to the graphics and gameplay.

A long time coming

It was originally tipped to launch by the end of 2015, but Zynga held off on the release to focus on increasing its day-30 retention by 2%.

Zynga was quiet on a release date for 2016 until its Q3 financials, but suggested a launch around the Christmas period and suggested the game will have "a minimal impact due to its holiday release".

There's a lot riding on the success of its launch, especially after so long in development, and the fact that Zynga spent $527 million on acquiring developer NaturalMotion in 2014.
