We've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn on Xbox Game Pass ever since it was announced with an "Early 2023" release window, but unfortunately we're going to have to wait a bit longer to enjoy it.
The game has now been delayed to 2024, with the developer says is the result of needing to "make Flintlock the absolute best experience it can be at launch". Here's a look at the full message to fans:
"We want to update our fans on the development of Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn. To make Flintlock the absolute best experience it can be at launch, we have made the decision to move the game’s release to 2024. We’ve been hard at work crafting a unique and deeply detailed open world brimming with thrilling fights, rewarding exploration and a true sense of discovery. "
"It’s important to our whole team that Flintlock is a special experience, and we owe it to ourselves and to all of you who have been following the game since we announced to make it the most impressive and unforgettable game it can be. Your ongoing and unwavering support has been incredible. Each of us at A44 Games are humbled and inspired by your excitement for what we are creating and we truly appreciate your patience. We have a lot of exciting things to show you and we’ll have updates for you soon..."
When it finally arrives next year, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn looks set to be an impressive new action-RPG open-world adventure in which you'll embark on an "epic journey to lead mankind’s final siege against the tide of the dead".
It's a shame that we won't be playing this one in 2023, but we're happy to wait for an "unforgettable" experience!
"Join humanity’s last stand as Gods and guns collide in an all-new action-RPG open-world adventure. The Door to the Afterlife has been opened, allowing the old God’s army of the undead to escape from within. The living are on the brink of extinction. It’s time for the coalition army to retake their world. Embrace vengeance, gunpowder and magic and embark on an epic journey to lead mankind’s final siege against the tide of the dead."
