VampyrPlatform: PC, PS4, XBox OneGenre: Action, RPGDeveloper: Dontnod EntertainmentPublisher: Focus Home InteractiveRelease: 06/05/2018Rated: 18+PEGIDontnod Entertainment, the developers of Life is Strange and Remember Me, have announced that their upcoming RPG about a doctor-turned-vampire will have to be delayed to spring 2018. Vampyr’s delay, according to the company, happened due to a now-resolved technical issue that ended up affecting the team’s schedule. Dontnod CEO Oskar Guilbert explains:

“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.”

Guilbert added that the delay gives the team enough time for “the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr's scope”. We’re a little bummed about the delay, but we’ll happily take a polished game over a rushed one. In the meantime, check out Vampyr’s trailer from this year’s E3, or some pre-alpha gameplay footage from last year:
