Vostok Games and Focus Home Interactive have announced that their upcoming Battle Royale title Fear the Wolves has been delayed and will release into Early Access later this summer.
Vostok Games’ upcoming Battle Royale title Fear the Wolves won’t see its Early Access release on July 18, 2018, due to the team requesting extra development time on the game in order to raise the quality of the title and enhance the full experience of their upcoming titles unique and dangerous atmosphere.
The delay will see Fear the Wolves release later this summer as a more polished and developed title. Because of this delay, Vostok Games has confirmed that the closed beta period has been extended and will allow for more player feedback and polishing to shape the game.
Both the publisher and developer have both confirmed that they have been “listening to the expectations and feedback” of those participating in the closed beta of the game.
“The positive community feedback encouraged us to delay the release of the Early Access to ensure the well-received core experience isn’t marred by technical issues,” said the developer in a press release.
“On top of fixing these issues, this delay will also allow us to further improve other aspects of the game, thanks to the masses of data and player feedback gathered through testing. We anticipate that the extra development time will raise Fear The Wolves’ quality to a level at which players will be able to fully experience its unique atmosphere,” stated Vostok Games in their official press release about the delay.
Fear the Wolves is expected to launch next year when it leaves Early Access. Vostok Games has confirmed the game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime next year.
