Ukrainian developer Frogwares, best known for creating the Sherlock Holmes Series, have confirmed today that their Lovecraftian-inspired action-adventure title The Sinking City will no longer be launching on March 21st as originally planned. Instead, it will now release in just over three months time, on June 27th.
Although this news comes at quite short notice, a video from the developer's YouTube channel provides a candid insight regarding the reasons behind the delay. Simply put, March was deemed too crowded for The Sinking City to truly receive the recognition Frogwares feels it deserves, with other popular AAA games from larger studios such as Devil May Cry 5, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice dominating this month's gaming calendar. Sergey Oganesyan (Community Manager at Frogwares) shows a refreshing sense of self-awareness in announcing the news below, indicating that the comparatively small team wish to release their newest title in "a less crowded time-frame" after all of March's "great" blockbuster releases have had their time in the spotlight.
