You know development of a game probably isn't going too well when this is just the third article we've ever written covering Star Child since its announcement back in June 2017. This PlayStation VR title was revealed at Sony's E3 conference that year and it hasn't ever been seen since, even skipping the recent State of Play presentation which shone the spotlight on upcoming PSVR games. Has it been quietly cancelled? It's impossible to say for sure, but there's a fair amount of evidence to suggest so.
Star Child was delayed on 21st December 2018 after developer Game Trust put out a tweet stating it "can't wait to share more soon!" Since that was sent out, the Twitter account has not posted a single thing and the last tweet it liked was back in March 2019. It hasn't responded to any tweets from fans or posted an update like it said it would. Hell, the website in the profile's bio links back to the main Playful Studios site rather than a dedicated page for the game now.
Further evidence of a cancellation can be sourced from the beginning of this year, where a significant amount of the publisher's staff was unfortunately laid off. That's probably not a good sign, is it? Separately, we have reached out to Playful Studios on three different occasions to request comment on the current status of Star Child. We also contacted developer Game Trust about the project. None of these emails received a response.
So, is Star Child gone for good? We can't say for certain, but we're fairly confident this title won't ever see the light of day. Have you been waiting for more news on Star Child? Share your thoughts on the situation in the comments below.
