Mocht je halsreikend uitkijken naar de nieuwe Gungrave game, dan zul je helaas nog ietsjes langer moeten wachten. Ontwikkelaar Iggymob heeft de third-person shooter namelijk uitgesteld naar 2020. Dit maakten de general director Kay en producent Jun bekend via de onderstaande brief.
De Zuid-Koreaanse studio vertelt dat ze graag de kwaliteit van de game willen verhogen en dat ze in de tussentijd hard op zoek zijn gegaan naar getalenteerde artiesten en ontwikkelaars om ze hierbij te helpen. Helaas kwamen ze ook tot de conclusie dat een release deze december niet meer haalbaar was en dat ze daarom hebben besloten om de game naar 2020 uit te stellen. Het duo benadrukt dat ze hard aan het werk zijn om van Gungrave G.O.R.E. iets speciaals te maken.
Een nieuwe releasedatum voor Gungrave G.O.R.E. is nog niet bekend. Zodra een nieuwe datum bekend is, lees je dat natuurlijk bij ons terug.
“Hello, Gungrave fans! Long time no see and I hope every one of you is doing well.
Gungrave G.O.R.E was going to be released in December 2019 but we have moved the release date to 2020.
The trailer we have revealed during Tokyo Game Show 2019 hit one million views in two weeks. As of today, the trailer hit five million views globally. This has motivated us so much.
Fans of previous titles keep supporting us and those who didn’t know what Gungrave was are now showing interest in us, which gave us the drive to “make the game even cooler than we wanted to make.” We’ve had hardships and will face even more in the future, but we will not give up and will present you with “cooler game.”
We would like to mention Sony Interactive Entertainment, Epic Games, Nightow Yasuhiro, Digic Pictures, and all the users who showed us support and wait for the game. We would like to thank all of them for supporting us. Our dream to make this game amazing has become even firmer than before.
We’ve been on the hunt for talented artists and developers to raise the quality of the game. It took us some time to find them, but we were so lucky to find those who agree with, support, and want to be part of our dream with their abilities. We are confident that the quality will be enhanced working with them and because we get to work with them, those hardships felt like nothing.
Mr. Kamikokyuryo, Mr. Benoit, Mr. Robert, and our new signing, Mr. Kawamura gave us new inspiration and with them, we are making something great together. As we were looking into our new members and Gungrave G.O.R.E, we realized we can make something greater than we originally planned. We are moving forward with the thought of “make something greater.”
As we went through all these processes, we realized that it isn’t possible to release the game in December 2019. It can be said by anyone, but we decided to move the date because we believe that we can come up with something great with amazing quality.
We will release Gungrave G.O.R.E in 2020. Our staff have the same goal and dream. Therefore, we have great teamwork within the team we have. I apologize to those who were looking forward to the game. However, we will come up with something great, so stay tuned!
It’s almost Christmas! I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday!”
