Today, publisher Headup announced a slight delay for their rogue-like tactics survival game Dead Age 2. The official statement reads as follows:
“Due to the necessary work adjustments during the COVID-19 lockdown which were necessary to keep everyone at good health, the current version of Dead Age 2 did not quite reach the technical quality standards that the studio and us have set and wanted to achieve for the Early Access Release on June 3rd – we are close but simply not 100% there yet…
As we strive for the highest quality even for an Early Access release and as we feel we also owe this to you, the players, we mutually decided to postpone the Early Access to July 16, 2020 to secure the best possible game experience.
We apologize to everyone who counted down the last couple of weeks. And please believe us: This decision was not easy for us. But striving for excellence, we humbly ask for your understanding in this matter. Thank you for your patience, and rest assured that we can’t wait for you all to get your hands on what has been created over the last three years.”
The new release date for Windows PC in Early Access via Steam and GOG is July 16, 2020.
