Vampyr, the anticipated action RPG from Dontnod Entertainment has apparently hit some problems and is being delayed into next year. As always, the developers promise it’s for the best.
The news came via the game’s Facebook page, by none other than Oskar Guilbert, CEO of Dontnod Entertainment.
He explained that “a technical issue – now solved – has set our teams’ schedule back at the end of the development.”
Guilbert promised that said delay would allow the team “enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr‘s scope.”
Vampire fans are quite excited about Vampy since the announcement, as there really hasn’t been a big budget game in the vampire genre.
Based in London during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, Vampyr puts you into the role of Dr. Jonathan Reid. Reid, who has recently been turned into a vampire, struggles with his new found reality. He is constantly at odds with his new inner desires as a vampire mixed with the Hippocratic Oath he took as a doctor. Often hating himself for what his needs as a vampire are forcing him to do.
The developers insist that there is a way that players can actually make it through the entire game without killing innocent bystanders.
