If you were looking forward to Julian Gollop’s evolution of XCOM in Phoenix Point, you have to wait a bit longer. The game was aiming for a December 2018 release but it seems Snapshot Games needs some more time to get its alien crabs in a row. Gollop says the game should release in June 2019.
In a video announcing the delay, Gollop talks about the high expectations people have for this game and that the game is much bigger than initially planned, with the team growing to handle the demands.
“To be honest, this has been a slower process than I wanted, but I felt that we needed the best talent that we could find. I am glad to say that we now have 35 great developers in our Sofia studio, and as a consequence of our recent, excellent exposure we are attracting offers of help from game developers around the world.”
