Vertigo Games is pushing After the Fall back to later this year, with the original Oculus Quest getting the game next year.
The development team at Vertigo Games has posted an unfortunate update today informing fans that its VR co-op zombie shooter, After the Fall, will not be releasing this summer as originally planned. Instead, the game will now release later this year on PSVR, Oculus Quest 2, and PCVR. The original Oculus Quest will get the game at an unspecified date in 2022.
The reason for the delay, according to the presser, is that the team will need more time to get the game into a state that they’re happy with.
The statement reads:
“With After the Fall, we have set ourselves the ultimate goal of bringing you the best possible 4-player co-op experience in VR. To ensure a smooth multi-platform launch with cross-platform support, we are giving our development team the time they need to finalize their work.”
“After the Fall is our most ambitious VR title to date, developed from the ground up for three widely divergent VR gaming platforms. Under the hood, our team has extensively worked on developing the necessary infrastructure to ensure that you can experience the game together seamlessly, regardless of the platform you play on.”
The update goes on to say that more info on the game and its pre-release beta will come in the next few months and that the extra time afforded to the developers will help deliver the best co-op zombie-slaying experience.
It’s a shame, but these things happen. Besides, it’s not like we’re short of PSVR games to play through this summer, right?
