Dontnod have announced that the release for their upcoming RPG Vampyr
has been delayed. Perhaps not the most surprising considering how close we were getting to the game's original November release window without a concrete release date, but nonetheless disappointing news for fans of the Remember Me
and Life Is Strange
Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DontNod Entertainment, had this to say about the game's delay:
Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision. However, we believe that meeting a deadline should never compromise quality. We were still convinced just a few weeks ago that we would be able to release Vampyr this year. Unfortunately, a technical issue - now solved - has set our teams' schedule back at the end of the development.
This delay allows us enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr's scope, with its ambitious, semi-open world, its complex narrative and deep RPG mechanics that give players a real impact on the world.
We want to thank our publisher Focus Home Interactive for giving us the means and time necessary to provide players a memorable experience... especially since so many of you are eagerly waiting for it.
A disappointing announcement to be sure, but one that should be worth it in the long run. Vampyr
is now scheduled to release in Spring 2018.
