New week, new delays, and this time it’s the ostensibly extremely terrifying horror title Scorn. The HR Giger-inspired thriller was first announced on Kickstarter in 2014 but was re-introduced in May of last year during Microsoft’s demonstration of upcoming Xbox Series X games.
It was supposed to be released in time for the launch of the Xbox Series S / X in November 2020, but it was delayed until 2021 – and it will not be released this year either.
According to the developer Ebb Software’s Kickstarter page, there will be no launch in 2021, and they will provide more information on December 10. It appears that the development has been difficult, and it is now scheduled for 2022 instead:
“In our case, a lot of mistakes were made and will make more in the future, but it’s a normal process for a new, inexperienced team. Everything that was done up until the middle of 2018 has been reworked, 90% of it completely scrapped.
“It’s about making it what we want it to be, not releasing it just because we gave some arbitrary release date. If it’s not ready, it’s not ready. Why would people want to play something that the developers think it’s still not up to par?
For the record, yes, the HR Giger-inspired has slipped into 2022 and we will have an official confirmation of the delay on the 10th of December.”
