Devolver Digital and developer WolfEye Studios announced today that Weird West has now been pushed back to release in late March. Not a lot of info was given out about the reason why, the studio simply put out this brief message along with the video down below explaining the situation.
Weird West is an impressively deep mix of action RPG and immersive sim which has the potential to deliver incredibly unique experiences, but also comes with a set of variables that can lead to unintended consequences. That's why we want to take some and launch the game on March 31, 2022. This will give us time to iron out some of the bothersome issues and accidental deadends, before delivering an experience you, the community, expect.
Thank you for your support and patience.
It's almost there!
We're not going to give the team grief for wanting to work on it more before releasing the game, because we'd rather have a game that works than one that requires nine patches before we can do anything worthwhile, it's just a shame we have to wait until it's practically Spring to do it.
