11 bit Studios, mostly known for their work on This War of Mine and strategy title Anomaly: Warzone Earth, finally revealed Frostpunk’s release date.
Managing Director Grzegorz Miechowski expressed his excitement over the announcement. However, Miechowski wished the studio was able to release the title before the end of Q1, but it wasn’t possible because the development team needed more time to polish Frostpunk properly and deliver “the best 11 bit studios title so far.”
We wanted to make it before end of Q1, but we ended up slightly moving the release further. The reason is simple – we needed this time for the final polishing required to deliver a game that, we believe, is the best 11 bit studios title so far. For us, production value is always the most important thing and a bug-free, carefully-balanced game is crucial to offer gamers the experience we want them to have. This War of Mine was a unique game about moral choices, and with Frostpunk, we are bringing this to a whole new level. It’s true that it took us some time to get here, but I’m happy to say that it was worth it!
Frostpunk releases exclusively on PC on April 24th. Make sure to check out the game’s release date announcement trailer below.
