Necropolis, a co-op rougelike game developed by Harebrained Schemes, has been delayed to later this summer.
Previously an agreement was made with publisher Bandai Namco to delay the game on PC, so that a simultaneous launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 would be possible. However, its seems as though the company still needs additional time to polish up the console versions.
The game is coming to “PC on July 12th, consoles are later this summer,” a spokesperson from Harebrained Schmees told Eurogamer. They also said the developer won’t have the console code for “several weeks”.
“We believe this is absolutely the right decision, and that the additional time will make for an even better Necropolis for consoles AND for PC,” they continued.
For those finding out about Necropolis for the first time, here’s the game’s description from the official website:
“Introducing NECROPOLIS: an addictive blend of third-person action and procedural dungeon-delving. Oh, and perma-death. Adventure alone or with up to 3 friends in a magical deathtrap that reconstructs itself each time you play. Will you find the exit, or die trying?”
The game will release July 12 for PC on Steam, priced at $29.99. The console versions are expected to launch this summer, currently without a release date.
