Earlier this month, developer Deck 13 revealed that its upcoming action RPG, Atlas Fallen, would arrive May. Now today, less than a month later, Deck 13 has announced that the game has been delayed to August.
More specifically, Atlas Fallen will now hit PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on August 10. This news comes after previewers recently went hands-on with the game as part of a press event and after the game was showcased at PAX East, which took place last week. As for why Deck 13 is delaying Atlas Fallen, the team says it needs more time with the game.
“Dear players, thank you for the tremendous support we received so far on Atlas Fallen. From your enthusiastic comments on our video teasers online and in person at PAX East to the positive previews from critics, we’re grateful and honored to have you excited to play our game. Our goal has always been to create a memorable A-RPG experience in a unique setting, with exciting gameplay and the option for fully playable seamless co-op with a friend.
We’d love to give the game some extra time which will allow us to deliver the best possible versions of Atlas Fallen. To achieve this, we have made the difficult decision to delay the worldwide launch of Atlas Fallen to August 10, 2023. We apologize for this disappointing news. We’ll come back in early summer to share updates on the game, including new gameplay footage and your first look at drop-in co-op gameplay. We can’t wait to bring you a fantastic experiences in the deserted lands of Atlas this summer.”
