Frostpunk 2, the highly anticipated narrative-driven city-builder, has unfortunately been delayed. Originally set to release on July 25, the game will now be launching on September 20. The developers at 11 Bit Studios made this decision after receiving feedback from a recent beta test, where players gave the game an average rating of 8 out of 10.

Design director Jakub Stokalski and art director Lukasz Juszczyk expressed their gratitude for the positive feedback from players, but also acknowledged that there were areas that needed improvement. They explained that the beta test provided valuable insights into what players enjoyed and what needed to be addressed before the game’s official launch.

In order to ensure that Frostpunk 2 delivers the best possible experience for players, the development team decided to delay the release and focus on implementing new features, improving existing game mechanics, and enhancing the user interface and user experience. While this may be disappointing news for fans who have been eagerly awaiting the game, the developers believe that the extra time will result in a better overall product.

The game is scheduled to launch first on PC on September 20, with versions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S to follow at a later date. Despite the delay, players can look forward to an improved and more polished gaming experience when Frostpunk 2 finally hits the shelves.

In the meantime, players can check out previews of the game to get a taste of what’s to come. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements as the release date approaches. Frostpunk 2 may be delayed, but it’s shaping up to be worth the wait.
