If you were looking forward to taking a trip through time back to the 1920s with Frogwares’ The Sinking City, it’s time to practice your waiting skills. Why? Because Frogwares and the game’s publisher, Big Ben Interactive, have announced today that The Sinking City has been delayed until the summer.
Originally set to release on March 21st, 2019, The Sinking City has now been delayed until June 27th, 2019. Frogwares made the announcement in the form of a short YouTube video that explains the reason for the delay. The reason is, quite simply, that the developers and publisher want to release the game with less competition. At least they’re being honest about it.
Frogwares also says that it will use the extra time to optimise and polish the game so that it’s even better for players when it eventually does release. You can watch the full announcement video in the clip embedded up above.
For those who don’t know what The Sinking City is, here’s a quick summary from the developers:
Set in the ’20s, The Sinking City is an adventure and investigation game inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of horror. The player embodies Charles, a private detective who has just landed in Oakmont, Massachusetts to investigate the cause of an unprecedented supernatural flood. In this heavy and murky atmosphere, the player explores the town to discover what’s behind whatever has taken hold of the town and the minds of its inhabitants.
