ThaumaturgeThe upcoming narrative-driven, turn-based RPG is scheduled to release in just a few days, on February 20. However, the game was delayed until March as developers and publishers hoped to avoid a “busy” February and allow more time. the game is more “breathing room”.
As we warned late last yearThe first few months of 2024 have been filled with the release of popular video games. This is bad news for people hoping they can clear the backlog in 2023, a generally quiet time for the gaming industry, as the first weeks of 2024 have already produced hits like: palworldHell Divers 2, Prince of Persia: The Lost CrownLike a Dragon: Infinite Riches, Tekken8, And Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The rest of February is not empty either, it’s filled with games. Pacific Drive, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, Star Wars Dark Forces Revised, And skull and bones All will be released before March 1. As a result of this busy start to the year, Thaumaturge Will wait for the dust to settle a bit.
On February 12, developer Fool’s Theory and publisher 11 Bit Studios announced on Twitter and explained in a press release: Thaumaturge Already in the hands of some critics, it was going to be postponed until March 4 to avoid all this chaos.
“Taking into account the busy launch period of February and the opening of a better release window, we decided to take this opportunity to provide more breathing room and thus receive the attention we believe it deserves,” the two companies said in a statement. “We want you to have enough time to fully enjoy the game, and we don’t think the current launch window is the perfect time to do that.”
While people who have been waiting to play the game are probably a little upset about having to wait another two weeks or so, it’s a smart move to move away from so many major and minor hit games and try to find a loophole in the game. In addition to giving your game a better chance of finding an audience, we’ve also adjusted the release schedule to attract the attention of overworked critics and creators. We’ll have to wait and see if the move works.
ThaumaturgeAn isometric RPG set in 1905 in Poland, an alternate universe filled with magical powers and challenging choices, it will now launch on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on March 4th.
