Game Pass farming and exploration game Lightyear Frontier delayed

By Heidi Nicholas,

The Lightyear Frontier team has just announced an indefinite delay for the game's Early Access launch, meaning the open-world farming and exploration game will arrive for Xbox Game Pass later than planned.

Lightyear Frontier, which has you farming on an alien planet, was set to launch into Early Access this spring, when it would also have been playable with Xbox Game Pass. This Early Access launch has now been delayed indefinitely.

"We've been hard at work building the beautiful world of Lightyear Frontier, but have made the difficult decision to delay the Early Access launch," says developer Frame Break. "We know this is never fun to hear, and we fully understand any disappointment caused by this decision. Video game development is tricky and while we can't commit to a launch window right now, we'll communicate a new one as soon as we can." Frame Break reiterates that it'll keep communicating with the community as development continues.

Lightyear Frontier sounds like it'll be an intriguing mashup of genres — we learnt more about it in our Lightyear Frontier interview with developer Frame Break's CEO Joakim Hedström.
