If you were hoping to play Axiom Verge 2 this year, I have some bad news for you. Developer Thomas Happ Games has announced that the delayedAxiom Verge 2 will now hit in 2021.
The blog post lays out all the reasons why the game has been delayed but this biggest piece that stands out is this tidbit:
So why is it taking so long? I originally based my prediction on the remaining features on my project list and how long those tasks took when I was making Axiom Verge. I don’t mean to make excuses, but there were a number of factors that led my project schedule astray.
I can understand the reasoning behind the delay. It’s an ambitious title that expands on many of the features of the original and this makes enemies much more “sophisticated.” I also wager the current ongoing pandemic as a huge factor in development. With many of us now working from home, it is hard to keep motivated at times.
