The Occupation PS4 PlayStation 4

The Occupation is a very promising looking narrative adventure game that was due out very soon indeed -- 9th October to be exact -- but developer White Paper Games has decided to delay the political thriller. Now, the game will release 5th February 2019 on PS4.

In a short statement posted to its blog, the developer says the title needs more time to get the game up to a standard it can be proud of.

We know that right now the game is so close to being complete and ready to play, but we also know that there are some tweaks and improvements that we need to make in order for it to be something that we’re proud to release and an experience that we’re happy to hand over to you all.

We’ve spent the past 4 years living in the world of The Occupation so we see the short delay as a small sacrifice to make sure we create something that values your time.

As in most cases, it's a shame, but is probably the right call at the end of the day. We'll have to wait a little longer to get our hands on The Occupation, but hopefully the four-month delay will be worth it.
