Video game delays are commonplace. But release dates getting brought forward is rather unusual.
Originally set to release in August, Modus Games’ Remothered: Broken Porcelain was delayed earlier this year until 20th October. The delay was a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and gave the team more time to ensure the game was as good as can be.
But today comes the news that the game has now been brought forward by a week. Remothered: Broken Porcelain is now releasing on Tuesday 13th October – just three weeks from now.
Publisher Modus cites the busy release schedule of October as reason to bring the game forward. In a press release, Shane Bierwith, EVP of global marketing at Modus, said, “This is an incredibly busy month for games, particularly horror games. While moving dates forward isn’t common, we’d like to allow horror fans to get their hands on Broken Porcelain early so players can have more time to experience all the great games releasing around Halloween.”
He’s not wrong; October is shaping up to be a busy month. Amnesia: Rebirth is scheduled to release on 20th October, so moving the release date forward means it no longer clashes. The end of the month will also see the release of Supermassive Games’ Little Hope.
Remothered: Broken Porcelain is now set to release on 13th October on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. If you want to find out more about the game, go watch our hands-on preview.
