Dreamfall Chapters Book Two will be delayed 48 hours
It's in the headline but worth repeating:
Dreamfall Chapters Book Two: Rebels will be delayed until Thursday, March 12th, at 1900 Oslo headquarters time (CET). That's 11 AM PDT, 2 PM EDT and 6 PM GMT.
The reason for this brief delay is that we've found and fixed a couple of critical bugs today, and we need another full day of testing with the next release candidate before we're comfortable pushing the big green button.
We will of course continue to work through the evening to make sure there are no other issues — stay tuned to Twitter for pictures of tired team members!
We sincerely apologise for the delay, but we're sure you want the same thing we do: a polished and (mostly!) bug-free experience. We'd rather delay forty-eight hours than rush something out without having tested it properly. We hope you all agree.
This will hopefully also enable us to release concurrently on Steam, GOG and Humble, something we always strive to accomplish but can't always deliver on.
When it comes to early access, we have stated on several occasions that our goal is to provide that with every episode, if possible. We opened up twenty-four hours early with Book One, and we will do our best to provide the same early access to relevant backers with Book Three. Because of the above-mentioned bugs, however, we have decided to not open up for early access to Book Two. Above all, we don't want anyone to have a subpar or buggy experience.
We are working to put together something special for early access backers next month, however, and we will update you on that as we get closer. It should hopefully be a nice surprise!
We hope you understand our decision to delay, and we apologise again for the late notice. These things do happen in game development, particularly with a small team trying to do big things (and Book Two is massive). We appreciate your support and continued patience, and we hope and trust you'll be very, very happy with what we have in store for this Thursday!
