It was expected that a delay will happen after the developers didn’t say during the autumn when Beneath a Steel Sky’s sequel, Beyond a Steel Sky would arrive…
Revolution Software has published an update on its website, which reveals a couple of things. Let’s see what they say: „From the very outset, our vision has been to make Beyond a Steel Sky our most ambitious adventure to date. We re-invented conceptual innovations going back to our earliest adventures. We’re pleased to say this vision is very close to being realised, but – as the eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed – the original release date was pencilled in as late 2019. Owing to a need to extend the development period, we can now confirm the launch of Beyond a Steel Sky will come a few months later in 2020.
This extra time is being used to ensure that we realise our vision: Integrating conceptual innovations like Virtual Theatre and system hacking into adventure gameplay; Innovating with graphics technology in ToonToy; Working closely with Dave Gibbons to create a beautiful visual style. As a reminder, Beyond a Steel Sky will still be coming to Apple Arcade, PC, and console. You can wishlist the game on the Beyond a Steel Sky Steam store page – the game will be available through other stores, and we will update you closer to release.
We’ll confirm a release date early next year – I’m sure you’ll all appreciate, we don’t want to give a more precise date until we are absolutely confident of achieving it. […] For now we truly appreciate your patience, and we’re looking forward to sharing more and more Beyond a Steel Sky goodness throughout Christmas and the New Year. As always; Be Vigilant!”
Beneath a Steel Sky is a 1994 cyberpunk sci-fi point-and-click, and its sequel will thus come in 2020. However, the console platforms are STILL not confirmed. Is the team behind Broken Sword aiming for a next-gen release…?
