Originally scheduled for launch in just a few weeks on 21st March, The Sinking City has been pushed back a couple of months to the Summer. Now releasing on 27th June, the team at Frogwares states that the reason for the delay comes down to being surrounded by bigger AAA titles during an already crowded month.
It's a refreshingly sincere apology and pushback from community manager Sergey Oganesyan, who states that the extra development time will allow the development team to optmise the game further in order to provide an even better experience. The Sinking City was indeed going to release in a crowded month, originally launching just a day before Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, while other heavy hitters such as Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2 already have or are set to hit the market soon.
