Developer Frogwares has announced that its promising Lovecraft-inspired, open-world detective adventure, The Sinking City, has been delayed. It will now launch on June 27th this year, rather than March 21st as originally planned.
Frogwares says that the delay is, in part, to ensure that players get “the best possible game” on release. However, it also readily admits that it simply wanted to launch The Sinking City in a “less crowded time frame”. The extra months between now and the new release date will be used, explains Frogwares community manager Sergey Oganesyan in the video below, to continue optimising The Sinking City, “making it a little bit better”.
The Sinking City, if you’ve not been following its development journey so far, is set in the 1920s and tells the story of Charles Reed, a private investigator plagued by hellish visions, who travels to Oakmont, Massachusetts in order to escape “the creeping insanity that afflicts him”.
