Set for a remastered edition on Nintendo Switch and PC early next year (Sir, You’re Being Hunted: Reinvented Edition), the original game has also received a new multiplayer patch, restoring its cross-platform play.
Remastered survival classic set for console release in Q1 2022 with new standalone edition on all PC platforms. This will be the first time the title has appeared on a console platform.
The original Sir, You Are Being Hunted was a genre-defining title in the first wave of survival games, and uses a procedurally generated environment to drop players into a robot-stalked British countryside. Funded on Kickstarter in 2012, initially released as one of the first games on Steam’s Early Access in 2013, and then updated with multiplayer in 2014, Sir, You Are Being Hunted went on to sell over half a million copies.
The newly remastered title will be produced by Netherlands-based Den of Thieves Games B.V., in partnership with Big Robot Ltd.
Besides announcing an early 2022 release, Big Robot and Den of Thieves Games are also releasing a patch for the original game (rechristened as “Sir, You Are Being Hunted: Classic Edition”). Multiplayer servers have been brought back, making the cross-platform multiplayer playable once again for the thousands of players who own the game.
