Bigben and its developer Frogwares announced today that The Sinking City will miss its original release date of March 21 and will release instead on June 27.
According to Frogware, they want to release the game in a less crowded time-frame. With so many games that are coming out this March, they want to make sure that people will notice their game and would rather release it to months where game releases are slow.
Here’s their statement:
“With so many games set to come out over the next few months, and after the massive AAA release overload of February, the team has decided to release their game in a less crowded time-frame,” Frogwares said in a press release. “The additional time will also be spent on minor improvements and polishing the game.”
