Gearbox Publishing and developer Heart Machine have delayed the Early Access launch of roguelite action adventure game Hyper Light Breaker from its previously planned fall 2023 release window to early 2024. It will be available for PC via Steam.
“We need just a bit more time on Hyper Light Breaker before we launch into Early Access,” said Heart Machine creative director Alx Preston in a video update. “This means we’ll be pushing our date to early next year in 2024. We have worked incredibly hard to get here. The game has come such a long way in such a short amount of time.
Preston continued, “We’ve built an expansive complex and rock solid foundation executing on the absurd idea of a new open world for every run. This, as you can imagine, takes time and effort—not only to develop, but to continue to iterate and test and make sure it’s consistent. We have a lot of wild ideas we want to put into the game, which is exciting and thrilling since the format and tech we’ve created allows so much possibility. This short push will give us the best chance for a stronger first step into open development in Early Access next year.”
