With the scheduled release date for Syberia: The World Before
just a week off, Microids announces it is delayed. The release of the new
installment in the adventure series is now planned for Q1 2022. Sadly, Syberia
creator Benoît Sokal died earlier this year
is mentioned in the announcement, but his passing is not mentioned as a reason
for the setback:
We wish to share some important news regarding the
Syberia: The World Before’s release date.
Initially scheduled for December 10th 2021 on PC, we’ve made a decision to push
back the launch to Q1 2022. We soon will release more information about the
exact release date.
We are committed to releasing the best possible game offering an immersive
adventure which will transport you and remain faithful to the universe of Benoit
Sokal. It currently seems necessary to give ourselves a little more time to
finalize the development in the best conditions.
We are already very confident and eager to share with you the new adventures of
Kate Walker. We are convinced that players will be enthusiastic about the next
episode of the series.
Without a doubt, Syberia: The World Before will be one of the major episodes of
the Syberia series.
