The Sinking City, a horror investigation game by Frogwares, has been delayed until June 27th, 2019. This news comes just a couple of weeks prior to when the game was supposed to launch. Despite The Sinking City probably being ready to release, the publisher, BIGBEN, has decided that it would be better to release the game during a quieter period.
The Sinking City Delayed to June 27
Launching a title during a full release window can sometimes hamper a game’s ability to sell well. With a crowded release schedule, and only so much disposable income, gamers have to decide where they spend their time and money. By pushing back the release of The Sinking City by three months, BIGBEN and Frogwares have ensured that the game has room to breathe while also giving the developers more time to polish the experience on offer.
To put it into perspective, there are a few big-hitting titles coming out at the end of March and into April:
- The Division 2 – March 15
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – March 22
- Tropico 6 – March 29
- Mortal Kombat 11 – April 23
- Days Gone – April 26
The Sinking City is looking to be an incredible experience for any fans of H.P. Lovecraft. Set in the 1920s, players take on the role of Charles W. Reed as he attempts to uncover the mysteries plaguing Oakmont, Massachusetts. Expect to encounter Great Ones, eldritch horrors, mind-bending visions, and basically anything related to Cthulhu.
This delay will no doubt be frustrating for fans who have been eagerly awaiting its release. However, this does mean that you can take a look at some of the other titles releasing in March and April. Hopefully it doesn’t receive another delay due to any news that comes out at E3 this year. When The Sinking City does release this June, it will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Microsoft Windows.
