The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners Aftershocks update has been delayed

Skydance Interactive has announced that it is delayed the Aftershocks update for its VR title The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. The reason for this delay comes down to technical issues, meaning that the May 20th release date is not viable. A new date has not been given but Skydance has stated that players will likely have to wait several more weeks for Aftershocks to be available. The full statement about the Aftershocks delay is below.

Hello Tourists,


We’ve been spending a lot of time in the past weeks getting our game ready for the announced Aftershocks update. However, technical issues have arisen which we didn’t anticipate. Launching on multiple platforms and upgrading to a new engine version is tricky to say the least. The bottom line is that we don’t want to ship without knowing that you can access the Aftershocks update on whatever supported VR hardware you’re using and have an experience up to our standards. As such, we’ve made the hard decision to delay this update initially planned for May 20.

This delay may push the launch by several weeks. We know having a definitive answer is important, so we’ll reach back out on our social channels once we have a final date we’re confident we can hit. Thank you for your support and patience.

The Aftershocks update will add brand new missions, new collectibles, and new items to help them survive in the collapsed city of New Orleans.We gave the game a resounding 9/10 in our review. Jason had this to say:

“The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is an excellent VR game that stands out from a lot of what the medium tends to be associated with. The weight of the combat combined with the constant worry that the undead and the living both bring combine for an incredibly gratifying experience. Throw in crafting, the solid writing and meaningful quests and you’ve got a pretty special game on your hands. This is definitely worth a look if you can stomach more zombies. I mean, kill them, don’t eat them.”

We liked the game so much we ran another feature on it, explaining why The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is the best PSVR game yet in 2020.
