Looks like the medieval skeletons and monsters beat-em-up won’t see the light of day anytime soon. According to Techland the development of Hellraid is paused and the game was sent back to the drawing board.
The dark fantasy title was first revealed in 2013. After many cosmetic and core changes it should have been on its way to release this year. The reason of this halt is that the game didn’t meet the firm’s internal expectations which results in scraping the progress and going back to planning.
“We would like to officially announce that our dark fantasy FPP game Hellraid will not be released this year as previously planned, and the development of the game has been put on hold, In the recent months we conducted an internal analysis and came to the conclusion that Hellraid, in its current shape and form, is not meeting our own expectations for this project.
“Therefore, we decided the best course of action would be to send it back to the drawing board and invent our dark fantasy title anew. In the meantime, we will consolidate our development resources and focus on further expansion of our Dying Light franchise.”
Where you waiting for the game to be released or haven’t heard of it before? Let’s hope it’ll come back better-looking and more interesting.
