Vampyr Pushed to Spring 2018 Release
DontNod Entertainment’s upcoming RPG Vampyr is going to miss its 2017 release. The developer has announced that players will have to wait until the sunny season of spring before they can visit 20th century London and eat people in the dead of night. A statement from DontNod’s CEO Oskar Gulbert follows:
“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.”
Vampyr is a narrative based game in which players can either be a force for good or evil after becoming a vampire, with London as their feeding ground. Vampyr will release spring 2018 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
