Black Salt Games’ Dredge, a fishing game with a healthy dose of cosmic horror, has seen a delay to its paid DLC. Titled The Iron Rig, it was set to release in Q4 2023 but has been delayed to 2024. In a new Steam Community post, the developer revealed that it would “need more lead time” to coordinate its marketing to ensure the launch is “as exciting” as possible.
“We were genuinely disheartened because we had committed to all our dedicated players, but we firmly believed there was only one path forward and that was to delay ‘The Iron Rig’ until next year.”
The good news is that fans can still expect additional content, with details coming soon. It also seems to be paid content, with availability and pricing to be revealed. “We understand this isn’t what we had originally promised, but we hope you understand. Your support means the world to us.”
Dredge released earlier this year for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch to critical praise (check out our review here). It’s received three free updates so far, which added map markers, a Passive Mode, Photo Mode, boat customization, and new Aberrations. As for what the upcoming DLC could entail, stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
