Hellpoint delayed to Q2 2020
tinyBuild and Cradle Games have announced that Hellpoint has been delayed to Q2 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The game was originally set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 16.
We've posted the update in full below, alongside a new launch teaser video. For more information, you can find the most recent trailer and overview here.
For several long years, Cradle Games have dedicated ourselves to one common endeavour: developing a kickass experience for all of you hardcore RPG enthusiasts out there—our occult sci-fi horror game Hellpoint. While we’re sure you were excited for Hellpoint’s launch next week, we must announce that the situation has regrettably changed.
The release of Hellpoint is being postponed for reasons you are almost certainly aware of. The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting businesses worldwide, and, unfortunately, Cradle Games are feeling the strain as well. Worry not though; Hellpoint won’t be delayed for long. The game, previously set to be released on April 16, is now scheduled for release before the end of Q2 2020.
We know you are disappointed by this sudden delay. Believe us—we’re equally frustrated having to do this at such short notice. However, the delay presents an opportunity to release an even better game this summer. Everyone at our studio is excited to use this additional time to further polish the game, and also address the feedback we have gathered from players of The Thespian Feast, making improvements that we feel will make Hellpoint a better gaming experience for everybody.
