Ukrainian developer Frogwares has recently made the announcement that Sherlock Holmes The Awakened delayed by a few weeks.
According to a new announcement by Frogwares, the development of the game has always been challenging since April 2022 due to the wary, but the last five months starting in October 2022 has made it extremely difficult for the team to continue.
The developers had planned to launch the game in late February or early March 2023, but due to the recent strikes on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine, they have now been forced to work around continual blackouts and redo their entire production pipeline. Now they have decided to move the launch into late March or April 2023.
“We had been trying so hard to make our planned release window, but the continual interruptions to power on top of the frequent missile attacks since October meant we had to replan and reschedule almost every month. We’re now at the spot we’re the game is content complete so we need to move into doing final QA, polishing and launch setup. To say we are tired of how much all this has derailed our day to day work since the start of winter is an understatement. But we’re doing our best to push on. Once we feel we are maybe a month away from release, we’ll be able to announce our full release date with an exact day.” – Sergiy Oganesyan, Head of Publishing, Frogwares – Sergiy Oganesyan, Head of Publishing, Frogwares
