Below was one of the first major indie titles announced for the Xbox One, but it looks like Capybara Games needs a little bit more time to complete their roguelike adventure game. Writing on their official website, the developer confirmed that Below won’t make it out this Summer as originally planned.
However, Capy has decided not to announce a new release date, and instead, have vowed to have a “firm release date” ready to go the next time we hear from them:
We did a lot of soul searching. We knew we wanted to get it into your hands as soon as possible. We knew the game was there, and we’re super proud of it, but we also knew it needed more time to make sure it lives up to our studio’s standards, and the quality that you expect from our games. From the very beginning, BELOW has been our most ambitious undertaking, and we’re just not quite done excavating its depths, or polishing all of its facets.
Instead of giving you a new, loose release window, we will be going dark while we take the time that we need to complete BELOW without compromise. The next time you see a major BELOW update, that means our game has a firm release date, which we’ll share.
Capy closed by thanking fans for their support and promised to see all of us “on the other side.”
