Deck13’s (The Surge) game will be delayed, but not significantly, as publisher Focus Entertainment has pushed back the fantasy action RPG.
The German studio has announced on Twitter that Atlas Fallen has fallen far short of its hopes of being available from May 16 for two (three…) current-gen consoles and PC, but let’s see how Deck13 explains the delay: “Dear players, thank you for the tremendous support we received so far on Atlas Fallen! From your enthusiastic comments on our video teasers online and in person at PAX East to the positive previews from critics, we’re grateful and honored to have you excited to play our game.
Our goal has always been to create a memorable action RPG experience in a unique setting, with exciting gameplay and the option for a fully playable seamless co-op with a friend. We’d love to give the game some extra time which will allow us to deliver the best possible version of Atlas Fallen. To achieve this, we have made the difficult decision to delay the worldwide launch of Atlas Fallen to August 10, 2023. We apologize for this disappointing news. We’ll return in early summer to share updates on the game, including new gameplay footage and your first look at drop-in co-op gameplay. We can’t wait to bring you a fantastic experience in the deserted lands of Atlas this summer! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we head to the finish line,” Deck13 and Focus Entertainment wrote.
So Atlas Fallen has become one of the games delayed in 2023. Such was the case with the PC port of The Last of Us Part I, which we wrote about the other day (and will return to later today for more on the developments) being released in terrible shape, so it’s no wonder that Naughty Dog is working on the fix in-house after taking it away from Iron Galaxy (PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection).
Atlas Fallen will be released on August 10 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC (Steam).
