The Witness development wrapping up

Look at a new screenshot of the hub area while you wait.

The Witness

Development on The Witness, the upcoming first-person puzzler from Braid creator John Blow, is wrapping up, the game’s latest blog post reveals.

“Just wanted to do a quick post saying that we are all working hard on the game, figuring out some of the last unknowns and polishing things up,” Thekla’s Orsi Spanyol said. “We are definitely in finish-the-game mode, that’s why the posts have gotten more rare.”

A release date is still to be announced, but Spanyol shared a new screenshot of the finalized hub area first shown earlier this year, which we’ve attached above.

The Witness is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC.
