Vampyr – the supernatural RPG from Life is Strange developer Dontnod – has been delayed. Originally slated to launch later this year, the game will now release in autumn 2018.
"Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision," Dontnod boss Oskar Guilbert said in a statement. "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.”
Guilbert goes on to say that the additional time will allow the team to polish, and balance the game.
"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."
