The rumors are therefore true: the release of foresken shifts several months. The competent developer studio wants to use the extra time to prepare the Action-RPG ideally on the release in the fall.
ForSpoken: RPG fans have to be patient for a while
It had already been suggested, but now the confirmation is there: Action-RPG ForSpoken will not appear on May 24, 2022, as originally planned, but only a few months later on 11. October 2022 .
The shift was communicated via the official Twitter channel:
Developers want to use the coming months, especially to fix technical errors , so that the players can have a completely successful experience to the release.
The shift is correct and important
A release shift is always annoying for fans at first glance, but looking back is probably the correct decision .
In recent years, simply too many games were published in a unfinished state , such as cyberpunk 2077 or battlefield 2042 to name two particularly prominent examples. Although both games have received various adjustments and updates after their launch, but the call is irreversibly damaged.
Especially since in the case of researchers of the responsible Publisher Square Enix this year with Babylon’s case has already done a massive flop . The cooperative online action RPG received scattering reviews and is largely ignored by the players.
To Marvel’s Avengers: New “Square Enix” game is a colossal flop
In this respect, the displacement should also be in the interest of the publisher . Of course, the additional work does not guarantee that foresken will be error-free for the release, but you can at least assume the basic problems should then be resolved.
Or to say it in the words of video game legend Shigeru Miyamoto : “A postponed game will last well, but an overbursted game remains bad forever.”
