Darkest Dungeon, one of the most popular and successful Early Access titles there has ever been, will be delaying its console version for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The PlayStation ports will now release in late July/Early August. Developer Red Hook Studios announced the news in a post on their official forum today.
We have previously announced Late Spring/Early Summer as a target for PS4 and Vita release. With the adjustment of schedules and matching up with potential future events we are now targeting late July or August. We want to make sure that all of the Town Event contents we are working on now are solid for inclusion into the console release, as well as making sure it runs like butter and plays well with a controller. Adjusting controls, in particular, is not a quick process. We have a level of quality that we want to ensure in all of our releases and we would rather take some extra time to make it right, rather than rush it out the door. The awesome and talented Sickhead Games has been helping us with the porting.
We remain incredibly excited to bring the game to PS4 and Vita, and we have seen such enthusiasm from the community, as well. Sony has been a fantastic partner to work with, and we can’t wait to make a big Summer splash with the game!
Darkest Dungeon officially left Early Access at the beginning of 2016 and was one of our favorite games from the month of January.
Darkest Dungeon is not a game for the faint of heart as you will get your butt thoroughly kicked time and time again. Fortunately, there is an immense amount of satisfaction that comes from successful dungeon runs so there is a certain sadistic addictiveness that comes with playing the game.
