We've been quite impressed by what we've seen from Gangs of Sherwood so far, and we were definitely looking forward to getting hands on with the game in just a few days here. However, unfortunately, the title has seen a last-minute delay, and is now due out at the end of November.
Developer Appeal Studios has given us a reason for the delay in a short company statement though. To sum things up, recent player feedback from a 'Steam Next Fest' demo event led to the team to delaying its release:
In light of the abundant feedback gathered from the Gangs of Sherwood demo period during October’s Steam Next Fest, our teams have decided to defer the game’s official release, originally scheduled for 2 November, until 30 November 2023.
This additional time will be used to fine-tune certain aspects and incorporate some improvements requested by the community, giving Robin and his merry men the chance to step up their preparations for their confrontation with the armies of the Sheriff of Nottingham!
Gangs of Sherwood will be available from 30 November on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Please accept our thanks in advance for your understanding and patience.
See you soon on Gangs of Sherwood!"
