Frostpunk 2 Delayed To September

Frostpunk 2 Release Date Delayed

Fans of the upcoming city-builder game Frostpunk 2 will have to wait a little longer for its release. Originally scheduled to launch on July 25, the game has been delayed to September 20, according to developer 11 Bit Studios.

Developer Feedback

After a recent beta test, the developers received valuable feedback from players. In a press release, design director Jakub Stokalski and art director Lukasz Juszczyk acknowledged the feedback and expressed their gratitude for the support.

Stokalski and Juszczyk stated, “Based on the surveys we received after playing Beta, the average rating you gave us was 8 out of 10. We’re super grateful for that! At the same time, it was only a small slice of a work-in-progress, still-growing game. While our backlog is plentiful, it was an opportunity for us to listen to what you enjoyed, and what didn’t quite land yet.”

They continued, “This allowed us to prioritize things better, and bring upfront the features and modifications we were already working on. But we also realized that to guarantee the best possible experience on launch, we need more time to finish the development of Frostpunk 2. That’s why we made the difficult decision to postpone its release to September 20th, 2024.”

Improvements Coming

11 Bit Studios has confirmed that they will be using the extra time to work on new additions to existing game mechanics, as well as improving the user interface and user experience.
