Frostpunk 2 Delayed to September 20

Game Directors Jakub Stokalski and Łukasz Juszczyk have stated that the release of 11 bit studios’ Frostpunk 2 has been delayed to September 20.

Design Director Jakub Stokalski and Art Director Lukasz Juszczyk said the following in a recent Steam post:

“Based on the surveys we received after playing Beta, the average rating you gave us was 8 out of 10. We’re super grateful for that! At the same time, it was only a small slice of a work-in-progress, still-growing game. While our backlog is plentiful, it was an opportunity for us to listen to what you enjoyed, and what didn’t quite land yet”.

“This allowed us to prioritise things better, and bring upfront the features and modifications we were already working on. But we also realised that to guarantee the best possible experience on launch, we need more time to finish the development of Frostpunk 2. That’s why we made the difficult decision to postpone its release to September 20th, 2024.”

Note that the scope of new work for Frostpunk 2 will include new additions to the game mechanics, alongside extensive UI and UX enhancement, and a popular by-demand city feature that has been dubbed Zoom Stories by the development team.

In the interim, one can pre-purchase Frostpunk 2 via its official Steam page for $44.99.

A Deluxe Edition that includes the base game, three DLCS (that are paid post-release content), 72 hours early access to story mode, an exclusive in-game item, a “warm flesh” novella, and a digital artbook and soundtrack is also available.
