Margaritaville Online Launch Pushed Back

January 17th, 2012

The public launch of Jimmy Buffett’s new social game Margaritaville Online will be January 25th, not the 18th as we were previously told.

Margaritaville Online posted this photo on Facebook today.

Along with the public release will come cross-platform support for iPhone and iPad. Up until now the game has only been playable through Facebook.
“The Margaritaville laidback state of mind is inherently social, and THQ (the game developer) has captured the spirit of that lifestyle in this game,” said Buffett. “With Margaritaville Online, fans across the globe can party together any time and any place.”

Developed by Exploding Barrel Games, the 3D open world features tropical environments and a full catalog of Buffett’s music. Players can create their own island resort, play mini-games and interact with characters from Buffett’s songs and literary works including Captain Tony and Joe Merchant. They’ll even be able to create their own band.
