Hopefully, we’re nearing the point where this can be properly put to bed. Abandoneddevelopers Blue Box Game Studiosannounced today that they have released an FAQon their website which answers many questions still lingering in the minds of players.
We do however get another confirmation of the release window being 2022, though they do clarify multiple times that the game isn’t ready for the public eye, plus we don’t even know the real name. A lot could change from now until launch, but it would be no surprise to find it still delayed, either due to issues with the pandemic or any other reason.
