One of the surprise hits of 2015, Ori And The Blind Forest, has seen its Definitive Edition pushed back by delays. The enhanced edition of the game was announced at Gamescom 2015 and was scheduled for release before the end of 2015. However, a Tweet from the official Twitter account has now confirmed that this has been pushed to Spring 2016.
No information regarding the nature of the delays has been revealed at this time, and the Tweet simply confirms the planned new release date with a fairly rough guide.
In official news: We want to let our fans know that you can play Ori Definitive Edition in Spring 2016 & will have more news to share soon!

Other Tweets surrounding the Definitive Edition have confirmed that it is set to include a fairly substantial upgrade on the original content of the game, and so it’s likely the delays are concerning the inclusion of the new features.
After the Tweet confirming the delay to the release date, the official account went on to confirm that the Definitive Edition will be available at a discounted rate to players who already own Ori And The Blind Forest, making the newer content available at a lower price for faithful fans.
