Syberia: The World Before Delayed

With the scheduled release date for Syberia: The World Before looming 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. He 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.
