CBE Software has confirmed that Someday You’ll Return has been delayed from it’s April 14th release date due to the Covid-19 date and will launch on PC on May 5th, 2020.
As the COVID-19 continues to remain a hot topic of discussion as the pandemic continues, games, events, and some social structures have changed to meet the guidelines of the World Health Organization. The studio has revealed that due to the impacts of the virus and the rules for social distancing being in their current place, CBE Software has had to delay their upcoming title, Some Day You’ll Return.
Set to originally release on April 14th, 2020, the game will now be falling back almost an entire month to give the team a bit more time to work on the final touches of the game. To do so, the team has delayed their game until May 5th, 2020, and will see it launch on PC that very day.
“Having to make the decision to delay the launch of Someday You’ll Return has been very difficult for us at CBE Software. The beta testing of the game has gone great, the game is almost ready to be released and we were really looking forward to launch this month. However, there are some elements, including live studio recording sessions, that were just not possible with the current crisis which have set us back. The most important thing is that everyone stays safe and does everything they can to minimize exposure to Covid-19. While we’re disappointed to have to wait to bring you our game, the health and safety of everyone involved is paramount.” says CBE Software co-founder Jan Kavan.
The virus has already lead to cancelations of multiple events including GDC 2020, E3 2020, and even QuakeCon 2020 as the pandemic remains at alarmingly high activity levels. Taking the safety of their staff into the highest of priorities, CBE Software is doing the best they can in the current situation.
“Originally we thought we would have to postpone the release until the situation gets better globally, possibly for months, but that is not the case. We worked really hard to secure modern organizational tools and technology to help us complete our recording sessions remotely. Luckily for us, we’ve been able to set up and implement these tools which has made the delay much shorter than originally feared. With these tools and the cooperation from our esteemed musicians. we are happy to be able to launch the game with only a minor delay,” explains Kavan.
CBE Software isn’t expecting to delay the game any further and will still see it land on the Steam store here rather soon.
