Publisher All In! Games and developer The Farm 51 have delayed the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of science-fiction survival horror RPG Chernobylite from their previously planned September 7 release date to September 28.
The PlayStation 4 version will be available both physically and digitally, while the Xbox One version will be available digitally. The digital version will cost $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99, while the physical edition will cost $34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99. The latter includes a detailed digital map of the Exclusion Zone, digital postcards, and the digital art book “The Art of Chernobylite.”
“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,” said All In! Games CEO Piotr Zygadlo in a press release. “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.”
The Farm 51 development director Wojciech Pazdur added, “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.”
