Frogwares didn’t just postpone Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One everywhere, but we have to report a delay here too.
The Ukrainian studio posted an announcement on Twitter. It reads: “To all our fans — we have an important announcement to make. As a studio, we decided that we need a bit more time to work on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One. Therefore, the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X+S versions will launch this fall, but the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One [ports] are planned for a later date (but not that much later).
The reason is that we need more time and a little breathing room for our time to wrap these versions up properly. We are talking a few weeks at most, but we will give you exact dates soon. However, rest assured that these versions are not cancelled. They are being worked on as we speak. Finally, a little heads up. This Thursday, on the 16th of September, we have something new for you, and we will answer one of your most asked questions. Keep an eye out for our socials,” Frogwares wrote.
If we had to guess, this question would likely be, “what about John Watson?” Holmes’ partner in the game is a mysterious character named Jon, who, according to Frogwares, is “definitely not Watson.” We’ll learn everything in a day so that we can be patient about this story. But, again, this is just a guess.
Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One will launch this autumn on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow a few weeks later. In the worst scenario, we suspect an early 2022 release for the 2013 consoles. They don’t want to repeat CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077, it seems!
