post on Steam
reveals that Hopoo Games now plans on officially launching
Risk of Rain 2
in August. This Windows roguelike shooter was
previously expected this
, but now they say they are taking extra time to make sure the game is
a complete game experience when it graduates from Early Access:
take 1.0 lightly - we know a lot of players have been waiting for the full
release to play the game, or have joined us early on in EA and are now holding
off for the full release.
What we wanted to make sure was that RoR2 1.0 was truly a complete game
experience, and that means not only completing and fleshing out content, but
improving and iterating on old features and content that’s been left behind. In
order to meet goals of what a 1.0 version of RoR2 can be, we want to let
everyone know we will be releasing 1.0 in August 2020.
To be explicit: the timing has not been altered because of COVID-19 - we’re
incredibly lucky in that our business was mostly unaffected. The timing has
changed because we’re expanding the scope of the 1.0 Update. We almost completed
the entirety of Early Access without any date changes! That said, we are pushing
forward and can’t wait for everyone to experience the changes we’re bringing
with the 1.0 Update.
