Back in June Larian CEO Swen Vincke said that the studio was aiming for an August Early Access launch, but it looks like we will have to wait a little longer.
Vincke was optimistic about the target, saying that the team was working hard but that the pandemic could slow things down. “We’ve been hit like everybody else in the world. Nonetheless, we managed to make a lot of progress, so we think we’re going to make it.”
Now that the month in question has arrived, Larian Studios has announced that the Early Access target won’t be reached, but says that Early Access is just around the corner.
The Panel From Hell will happen on August 18, which will have a launch date reveal, along with special guests. The panel will be viewable on Larian’s Twitch channel, as well as the Summer Games Fest YouTube channel.
