Annapurna Interactive has delayed the release of its upcoming road trip adventure game, Open Roads. Just over a month ago, a release date of 22nd February 2024 was announced, but that's no longer the case; the game will instead launch on 28th March.
In a statement to Engadget, Annapurna said the decision was made to "ensure the most polished experience for players". It's a delay of just over one month, but as always, the extra time should make for a better end product.
Open Roads tells the tale of a mother and daughter as they drive around the country, searching for answers to their family's secrets. It was announced all the way back in 2020, but is now nearly ready for prime time, albeit with a small extra delay.
It's possible the revised date is also to avoid clashing with the many major titles heading our way in February. The likes of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Helldivers 2, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and even notable indies like Pacific Drive will mean smaller releases will struggle for air. Whether intentional or not, the new date means Open Roads may have a better chance to stand out.
