It seems like Astroneer has been in Early Access on Steam for a while now, and while we've seen updates, it would be nice to get a release date. Well, our cries have been heard by the devs as System Era Softworks announced today that the game will finally be getting a proper release next year. The exact date will be February 6th, 2019, for both PC and Xbox One. No word yet as to whether the company will be doing anything for the Switch or the PS4. Here's a quick quote from this morning's announcement.
"Astroneer reflects on the legacy of human space exploration and imagines the future," says System Era Softworks communications director Joe Tirado. "We want to inspire a sense of wonder and reverence for the beautiful universe we live in, while promoting ideals such as creativity, tackling adversity and outside-the-box thinking."
We've had a lot of fun checking out the game and what you can do on the tiny planets you explore. Now we'll see if the devs add anything new in the next three months before release.
