Everspace 2 Release Date Delayed
And rightfully so.
Developed and published by ROCKFISH Games, Everspace was a unique space rogue like game where players controlled their spaceship, jumping from one sector to another, hunting pirates, collecting resources and improve their ships while doing so. After the success of the first game, followed by an astounding Kickstarter success, ROCKFISH Games began the development of the second game. Set to be released in December, the company decided to postpone the release date. According to the studio, they decided to postpone the release date to early January, in order to stay out of the way of Cyberpunk 2077 release. “We are aware that our fans are disappointed, but competing with arguably the most anticipated video game of the year is not a good idea ” said the ROCKFISH Games director.
Some however will be able to play the game before the release date. On November 2, everyone who backed the game’s Kickstarter at the €30 level or higher will get keys for the closed beta regardless of the release date for Early Access. The structure of their Kickstarter will make most of the backer levels eligible for closed beta.
The closed beta keys will be distributed when the game hits closed beta and the keys will be revoked when the game finally releases in early January. ROCKFISH games did not make an official announcement regarding the release date of the game other than it will be released early January but they are no longer competing with the titan which is the Cyberpunk 2077.
