If you’re eager to stalk the shadows of turn-of-the-century London as a morally conflicted vampire, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer. Developer Dontnod Entertainment just announced Vampyr has been delayed to spring 2018.

Vamypr delayed

Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DontNod Entertainment, had this to say:

“Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision. However, we believe that meeting a deadline should never compromise quality. We were still convinced just a few weeks ago that we would be able to release Vampyr this year. Unfortunately, a technical issue – now solved – has set our teams’ schedule back at the end of the development.

“This delay allows us enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr‘s scope, with its ambitious, semi-open world, its complex narrative and deep RPG mechanics that give players a real impact on the world.”

I guess we’ll just have to wait a few more months before we get to play Vampyr, which is a pity. The game does look very promising from what we’ve seen so far. You can watch some gameplay footage to get a sense of how toe finished game will be like.

Vampyr will be available Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
