Analogue‘s highly-anticipated Pocket handheld gaming device has now been hit with a third delay.

Announcing the news over on Twitter, the company says that it now hopes to start shipping the Pocket out in December after manufacturing was affected by Coronavirus-related delays.

“Unfortunately, due to new [COVID-19] restrictions with our assembly partners, their capacity to deliver within our agreed timeframe has been affected,” explains Analogue in a statement. “This has created a domino effect of delays beyond our control in what would otherwise be a seamless process.”

Elsewhere in gaming, rumors of an 8K-capable PlayStation 5 have surfaced.
