Nightingale, the ambitious fantasy survival has been postponed


The postponements in the world of video games continue and by now we should have got used to it. And so, after Marvel's Midnight Sun, the last game to be postponed, this time it's the turn of Nightingale, an ambitious survival that we learned about towards the end of 2021. Developed by Inflexion Games, a studio founded by former BioWare developers including general manager Aaryn Flynn, the title was initially slated for early access this year. Nothing to do though: the game, now, will only debut later.

Inflexion Games has informed players via Twitter, posting a message stating that it takes more time to to be able to launch the Early Access version of the survival. “We made the decision to postpone Nightingale. We decided to immediately update the game to Unreal Engine 5 to fully express its potential, without waiting for the end of the year, to launch the best possible gaming experience. In order to achieve this goal we need more time, which will allow us to improve every key aspect of the product, improve the contents and carry out a publishing job ”, the words of the development team declared on the social network.| ); }

Nightingale is now scheduled for the first half of 2023. We obviously await more precise communications regarding the release date, which will arrive probably early next year. Keep following geekinco for all the news and announcements in the pipeline from the world of video games.

Nightingale Has Been Delayed to Add Unreal Engine 5 Support

The upcoming Victorian-style fantasy game Nightingale has been delayed.

A statement from developer Inflexion Games posted to Twitter revealed that Nightingale has been delayed until “early 2023” in order to upgrade to Unreal Engine 5. Unfortunately, no specific release date has yet been set.

“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Nightingale’s Early Access release to the first half of 2023,” Inflexion revealed. “We’ll have more news on specific timing at a later stage.”

The delay to Nightingale’s early access release has been made for two very good reasons.

“The first is an upgrade to Unreal Engine 5,” the studio revealed. “After reviewing the potential UE5 has to offer, we decided on upgrading now rather than waiting until after release.”

“Secondly, Inflexion Games is committed to delivering the best possible experience and fulfilling the promise of what Nightingale’s universe of realms has to offer players. To Achieve that, the additional time will allow the team to make key improvements, bolster content, and polish gameplay.”

Although a new release date has not been set, we can expect Nightingale to debut in early 2023.

“In the coming weeks you’ll see more game and development updates from the team,” they confirmed. “Until then, we thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for what we’re making. It may take a little longer for the mystical Fae portals to open, but we appreciate you taking this journey with us.”

Nightingale is an upcoming shared-world survival crafting game with a fantasy setting that has a decidedly Victorian twist.

“You are stranded beyond our world, cut off by the sudden collapse of the arcane portal network,” says a brief synopsis. “This catastrophic event has left you - and countless others - fighting to survive in a labyrinth of mysterious and perilous realms. Prepare for a journey of adventure, danger, and discovery - as you search for a way back to the last haven of humanity, Nightingale.”
