Remothered: Broken Porcelain, one of 2020’s big upcoming horror games, has been delayed. The game, which showed off debut gameplay footage and announced an August release date just last month, will now arrive on October 20 instead.
In an update on publisher Modus Games’ website, community manager Luke Croft has announced that developer Stormind Games is delaying the release to “deliver the experience you deserve.” As with many recent delays, COVID-19 is to blame: “Having additional time for polish and to accommodate unanticipated longer timeframes due to the current global situation will help us do exactly that.”
As Croft points out, this means the game will now launch closer to Halloween, which is fitting. It will now launch on the same day as Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga–a game it shares little in common with.
This is good news for horror fans who might have been expecting a less spooky Halloween than usual–after all, the movie Halloween Kills has been delayed into next year due to the pandemic.
Broken Porcelain is a sequel to 2017 title Remothered: Tormented Fathers, which reviewed well. If you’re hungry for more horror, it’s also worth checking out the trailer for the next Resident Evil title, Resident Evil: Village, which is coming in 2021.
