Focus Interactive has announced that the Call of Cthulhu release date has been pushed into 2018.
The highly anticipated horror title was originally scheduled to ship for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One at some point in 2017, before being slowly pushed back to a Q4 window.
Writing on the official Call of Cthulhu Twitter, developer Cyanide commented: “2018. We’ll announce an accurate date as soon as possible, but first we’re focused on making the best game possible. Have a nice day!”
The upcoming horror title is based on the H.P. Lovecraft novel and the role-playing game of the same name, and sees private investigator Edward Pierce snooping around the spooky Darkwater Island in Massachusetts, as he attempts to uncover the mystery behind a grisly murder.
Call of Cthulhu was originally in development at Frogwares, who are best known for their work on the Sherlock Holmes titles.
Production then switched to Cyanide in early 2016, who confirmed that the game would marry both RPG and stealth elements in semi-open world, punctuated by the occasional dose of psychological horror.
