After Remember Me and Life Is Strange, there’s a fair amount of anticipation surrounding Dontnod’s next game, Vampyr. It was originally planned for a release this year, but after a lack of release date news, it’s no surprise to hear that the game has now been released until Spring 2018, when it will release for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DontNod Entertainment had the following explanation:
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.
So you can put your cape and fangs back in the closet for the time being.
