The developers of Biomutant, Experiment 101, released a statement on the game’s official Twitter account, assuring people that the game is still very much in development, entering the home stretch. They are going to announce a launch date as soon as they feel comfortable enough. So, just a little more patience, and hopefully, it’ll all pay off.
The first time the gaming public caught wind of Biomutant was way back in 2017. At the time, the game was slated to launch in 2018. And, well, that didn’t happen. The new launch window was summer 2019, and I even got to play it for a bit on Gamescom 2018. I liked what I saw, and was keen to get my mitts on the full thing. Well, the summer of 2019 came and went, without any Biomutant. Recently, it has fallen off the map so completely that it was in serious jeopardy of falling by the wayside.
Fortunately, according to a recent post on the Biomutant Twitter account, the game is still alive and kicking. The developers are working on it “harder and more focused” than ever: “We are doing everything we can to make this the best game all of us have ever worked on and that it will be as entertaining and great as we can possibly make it.” Apparently, Biomutant has now entered the final stages of development, so, with any luck, we’ll be hearing more about it soon. The reason behind the delays is simple: the game’s scope simply demanded more time.
Unfortunately, the post does not give us a specific launch date. However, the devs will “reveal the release date as soon as everyone at our studio feels confident about hitting that date and that the game is ready for it.” I’m looking forward to it; though, admittedly, I am getting a little bit worried. Still, always better to delay something than rush it out the door.
