Vampyr is an action RPG video game, developed by Dontnod Entertainment. The game was set to release at the end of 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, but unfortunately, the developers have decided to delay the release to Q1/Q2 2018.
Vampyr was set to release this year, but due to a technical issue, the game is now set to release on PS4, Xbox One and PC in spring 2018.
Oskar Guilbert, Dontnod’s boss has shared his thoughts on this matter, saying:
“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.”
Those who pre-order the game will gain access to bonus DLC called “The Hunters Heirlooms”, which contains an exclusive sword, pistol and equipment.
