Dontnod’s ‘Vampyr’ Delayed until Next Year

Fans hungry for Dontnod’s action RPG Vampyr will have to find something else to sate their hunger, at least for the rest of the year.

Today it was announced that due to technical issues that have hampered development, the game has been pushed back to Spring 2018. The last we heard of Vampyr was back at E3, when it had its original release date set for this November. According to DontNod Entertainment CEO Oskar Guilbert, the problem arose a few weeks ago. The technical issue – now resolved – has set the teams’ schedule back at the end of the development. The delay, however, “allows [the team] enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase”.

Given the ambitious nature of the game (as well as its potential), it’s probably best that the game gets the polish it needs. Ah, well. At least we have Dontnod’s Life Is Strange (which is getting its sequel next year, too!) to hold us over.

    Bummer. Oh well, it looks interesting, will look forward to it then

    I would actually love to see a BloodRayne reboot or sequel!

    Already had it preordered for my main game this winter. Oh well at least it’ll be fine tuned and polished when it gets here.

    So let me get this straight they’re not releasing a broken unfinished product? Well that’s a bit odd

    Good. I’d rather see a game get delayed over technical issues rather than recrive a broken one.
