Monolith: Requiem of the Ancients renames itself to Astor: Blade of the Monolith

Developer C2 Game Studio and publishers Versus Evil & tinyBuild have shared their decision to rename Monolith: Requiem of the Ancients to Astor: Blade of the Monolith.

C2 Game Studio Founder Luis Correa provided a statement that explains the reasoning behind the decision to rebrand their title.

We wanted to ensure Astor: Blade of the Monolith had a strong, unique identity. Something to really make it stand out.

We think the new title offers something punchier and more distinct. And you won’t need to wait long to play it as Astor: Blade of the Monolith will launch on all platforms later this year!

The upcoming third-person action RPG is set to launch in 2024 for "PC, Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms."
