Capy delays Below, but it’ll have a “firm release date” the next time we hear from them

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.”

Capybara will now release Below in 2016

It look like Capybara’s Below, a roguelike in development for the PC and Xbox One, is going to need a little more time in the oven. Originally expected to be out by the end of 2015, Capybara’s President and Co-Founder, Nathan Vella, recently told Game Informer that the game was pushed back to 2016:

Below is indeed coming in 2016. Past that I can’t share much, yet. We’ll certainly have a lot more content to show and news to share in the new year.

Since there’s just a week and a half to go in 2015, this news isn’t too surprising.

Capybara confirms Super Time Force in 2013, Below in 2014

capybaragames-logoCapybara Games confirmed a few release dates for us this weekend during the PAX Prime expo.

GameSpot caught up with Capybara’s President, Nathan Vella, and he told them that Below, a roguelike the company has in development for the Xbox One as a timed exclusive, would be released in 2014. Meanwhile, Polygon also chatted with the studio head yesterday and he revealed that their fourth dimensional shooter for the Xbox 360, Super Time Force, is “feature locked” and will be released in 2013.

They’re vague release dates, but it’s more than we had pre-PAX Prime.

Capybara, the developers behind Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, will be bringing Below to the Xbox One. The game, which features music by Jim Guthrie, is part of the “rogue-like” genre and looks ridiculously low-tech compared to the rest of Microsoft’s Press Conference presentation.

Below does not currently have a release date.
