Devil's Hunt Sees Console Delay, PC Release Still On Track
Action-adventure game Devil’s Hunt from Layopi Games and 1C Entertainment won’t be hitting consoles this fall, with that release pushed back into first quarter 2020.
While that might be disappointing for PS4 and Xbox One owners, the good news is that the development team pushed back consoles to ensure they can provide the level of polish and quality they want to hit for the PC release, which still targets September 17th.
They also announced Nintendo Switch owners will get their own chance to punch their way out of Hell, with that release expected in first quarter of 2020 as well.
Here’s the press release:
Punch a damned demon in its damned face – Devil’s Hunt launch dates and Switch release revealed!
Coming to PC on September 17th, and PS4, Switch and Xbox One in Q1 2020
Originally slated to launch simultaneously across all platforms, the decision to shift Devil’s Hunt’s console launches into early 2020 was not one that was made lightly. Both 1C Entertainment and developer Layopi Games made the decision in order to ensure the game’s PC debut has the polish and commitment to quality befitting an extravagant third person action game where players fight their way through Hell, Jerusalem, and… Miami?
Step into the designer shoes of Desmond, your not-so-friendly neighbourhood anti-hero and general Miami nuisance. Turns out, he’s forged a deal with the devil and is firmly planted in the middle of a cosmic struggle between angels and demons. With the fate of humankind hanging in the balance, Desmond must come to grips with his demonic new powers as he literally punches his way through hell, taking down all manner of fearsomely angelic and demonic creatures.
Devil’s Hunt launches on PC on September 17, 2019, with a console launch (PS4, Switch, Xbox One) in Q1 2020. For more information, be sure to Wishlist the game on Steam and follow Layopi Games and 1C Entertainment on Twitter.
