Song of Horror’s Console Ports Delayed Until Next Year
It seems like Song of Horror‘s latest song may need a little more tuning up. Today the developers have announced that they’ve chosen to push the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of the game back to Q1 2021.
While no exact reason was given for the delay, publisher Raiser Games did put out a short statement on Twitter. They claimed the game wasn’t up to the level of quality that they felt it needed to be and made the difficult decision to delay it. Their hope is that they can then use the extra time to make a game that is even better and closer to the player’s expectations.
If you missed the game, Song of Horror is an episodic horror game release on Steam starting with episodes 1 and 2 on October 31st, 2019, and releasing three more episodes over the course of seven months. Despite its episodic nature, the game pays a lot of tributes to classics in the genre and features fixed camera angels and randomized scares. One of the big features is that there are several playable characters with special skills, but if a character dies then they’re dead for good.
You can grab the game right now on Steam here, or you can wait for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports next year.
