Dontnod Entertainment announced the upcoming action RPG, Vampyr, has been delayed from November to spring 2018. 


Here is the message from the developer:

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.

When was it supposed to come out? Dontnod only announced it like this year right? Release of games like this by companies like this is best in spring anyway, doesn't have to compete with 'those' games.
