Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Release Date Set For Winter On PS4

Panache Digital Games has narrowed down the Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey release date on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, confirming the ambitious-looking title, helmed by former Assassin’s Creed producer, Patrice Désilets, will launch in December 2019. Ancestors will see a PC release four months earlier on August 27 via the Epic Games Store.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Release Date Set For PS4

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will be available on PS4 and Xbox One as a digital download title, and is the first project from Désilets’ Panache Digital Games, which he co- founded back in 2014 after leaving Ubisoft.

“Our goal for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is to provide an experience no player has ever lived before”, said Désilets. “Our small team is creating an ambitious and immersive game with a unique setting that will captivate gamers of all types, and we look forward to players exploring our world later this year.”

“Private Division and Panache Digital Games share a passion for providing the best possible experience to all our players,” said Kari Toyama, Senior Producer at Private Division. “As partners, we support Panache in taking the time to ensure all versions of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey deliver the standard of polish upon release that the team has set for themselves. As a developer focused publisher, this is an important approach we take in working with smaller independent teams.”

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey spans millions of years as players attempt to survive Neogene Africa as humanity’s primate predecessors, evolving and expanding their territory while passing skills and knowledge over to the next generation. Along the way, you’ll scrap with predators, explore lush environments, and acquire new abilities on your journey of discovery across the ages.

Check out a new trailer for Ancestors below. Hopefully, Désilets will revisit 1666: Amsterdam at some point down the line now that he’s reacquired the rights to the game
