According to the team, the game is complete, and it's currently polishing and optimizing it. Thus, Techland will need some extra time in order to deliver a more polished product.

Real reason to much competition this holiday season and there not confident. Anyway it's already a year late since the developer went quiet last year missed the 2019-20 date.

Not an RPG, but I'm looking forward to this. I really enjoyed the first game. I hope this is the last delay.

I'm more surprised these days when a game isn't endlessly delayed.

Oh look at all those games and I'm not interested in most of them.

So they have my money already.

Anyway hey I was trying to be nice there mostly not confident and it's warranted due to various delays. All I'm expecting is an upgraded Dying Light on it's release.

Till then they can keep milking the original game.

Truer words have never been spoken.

I'll use the tired old trope and blame Co-vid again.

I don't think there's a significant difference tbh, nor do I think it matters. None of those games are very similar to Dying Light.

You are trolling right? Pathfinder and FC6 are no competition if the year 2022 list was not….

I think the time window thing does not matter that much in the great scheme of things for niche releases. Sure Pathfinder and Encased were recently released, but a lot of people will wait until the bugs are ironed out, which may take a good while. Most people who cared about those games have already been playing different Early Access/beta stages for months, so the release date was anecdotal. Others have already finished either of those games and and are looking for something else to play next (:raises hand!.

In the end, a game doesn't have to be played exactly the day it releases either. If it was a big blockbuster that sells millions of copies in a directly competing field, it may be worth pushing the release a bit further, but at the same time it shows character to not alter your plans because just about any other game releases close to yours, there is always games being released, every single week.

As far as we know, the makers of Atom might think it's Pathfinder/Encased who need to be afraid of releasing close to them, not the other way around.

Not me I hate Early Access and won't touch it, Eww it'S like cooties all over again.

Still all good points I'll give you that.

At least mainstream games don't use Early Access yet.
