Video game publisher All in! Games and development studio, The Farm 51, announced that the console release of Chernobylite, the sci-fi survival horror RPG for PlayStation 4 (physical and digital) and Xbox One is delayed to 28September.

“We at All in! Games pride ourselves in setting high standards for all our releases and are pleased with the games that we have published this year. Incidentally, due to some unforeseen issues with the console build, we decided to slightly delay the launch of Chernobylite until it gets resolved. We want to make sure we always deliver projects that are in excellent shape and pushing Chernobylite’s console release date back a few weeks will allow us to accomplish that. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we take the time to get this right,” said All in! Games CEO Piotr Żygadło.
“Chernobylite has been a labor of love and we are humbled by the reception we have gotten so far from both players and critics. We have complete trust that the All in! Games team is doing everything in their power to successfully bring Chernobylite to our fans on console. While the delay is unfortunate, it’s also entirely necessary to live up to everyone’s expectations,” said The Farm 51 director of development Wojciech Pazdur.
