It looks like gamers won’t be going to Hell in 2013. Techland has announced that Hellraid, their upcoming “competitive co-op” game, has been pushed back into 2014. The PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 game originally staked out a Fall 2013 release date but, according to Techland’s Marcin Kruczkiewicz, the team needs more time to make the kind of game they want to.
Here’s what Kruczkiewicz had to say on the Hellraid development blog: “If we released our game this year we would have to make too many compromises and the final product probably wouldn’t meet all our promises and your expectations. That’s why we’ve made a tough decision to release Hellraid in 2014 or to be more precise: when it’s done.”
Kruczkiewicz specifically cited several additions and tweaks the team would like to make to Hellraid. These additions and tweaks include a reworked magic system and “completely new game modes for single player and co-op.”
