Frostpunk 2 delayed to September

Frostpunk 2

11 bit studios have announced a delay for Frostpunk 2 pushing it beyond its release planned for this month.

Frostpunk 2 will forgo its planned July release for one a couple months later – on September 20th.

When the frigid city builder does launch it’ll be on Windows PC (via SteamGOG, and the Epic Games Store), and will be on PC Game Pass day one. The Xbox Series X|S and PS5 ports are coming later.

The decision to delay the game was made based on feedback from the game’s beta from a couple months ago, after which they decided to postpone the game to polish it up.

“Based on the surveys we received from you after playing, the average rating you gave the Beta was 8 out of 10,” game directors Jakub Stokalski and Łukasz Juszczyk said. “We’re super grateful for that! At the same time, the Beta was only a small slice of a work-in-progress, still growing game. While our backlog is plentiful, the Beta was an opportunity for us to listen to what you enjoyed, and what didn’t quite land yet.”

They added, “This allowed us to prioritize things better, and bring to the front the features and modifications we were already working on (we hope!) you’ll enjoy the most. Before we go into detail on the new additions, there’s one drawback we need to be upfront about. As we analyzed your feedback and prioritized things we want to add to the game, we realized that to properly do them justice – and to guarantee the best possible experience at launch – we need more time to finish the development of Frostpunk 2. That’s why we made the difficult decision to postpone its release to September 20th, 2024.”

The new work they’re planning on includes things like new additions to the game mechanics, extensive UI & UX enhancement and, by popular demand, a new city feature we like to call Zoom Stories.
