Developers Cite “Technical Issue” for Vampyr’s Delay
The upcoming story-driven vampiric RPG game, Vampyr, from Life Is Strange developer Dontnod, has been delayed from November 2017 to spring 2018. In a press release, the studio said a “technical issue” was the prime reason behind the game’s delay.
“Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision,” said Oskar Guilbert, chief executive of the studio. While the technical issue in question has been solved, it did cost development time hence the delay. “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.”
Overall, no surprise here for the game’s delay as it will make a stronger game up before it hits gold. The developers are also currently making another Life Is Strange game as well.
Vampyr will release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC next year.
