Scorn now delayed to an October 2022 release date

Scorn is now set to be released in October 2022, Ebb Games and Microsoft has confirmed, marking a second delay for the horror title. Scorn was originally revealed back in May 2020 as an exclusive for Xbox Series X|S, and at the time a release for the console’s launch window was being targeted. However, close to the release date a new gameplay video was released and that shifted the Scorn release to 2021. Of course, with just a few weeks left of the year the game has not released.


At the time of reveal Scorn Game Director Ljubomir Peklar said: “For us as developers it’s imperative to present Scorn in the best way possible. The distinctive art style is only half the story – the other half is having all the technical parts of the game running smoothly. Xbox Series X is an extremely capable piece of hardware that will enable us to run Scorn at 4k 60fps with all the graphical bells and whistles. Ease of development and raw processing power are the primary reasons we chose to go exclusively with Xbox Series X.”

The story description for Scorn reads as follows: “Scorn lures players into a claustrophobic underworld populated with mis-shapen organic forms dripping with unnamed fluids. You will find yourself entirely alone, with only your senses and instincts to guide you through the non-linear nightmare of interconnected spaces. In Scorn, the environment is itself a character, and will do its best to unsettle and unbalance you. Each location has its own puzzles, characters and story to tell, all of which combine to create a cohesive world. On your journey through the game, new areas, skills, weapons and items will be unveiled as you attempt to comprehend the unfolding reality of Scorn.”
