As seems to be the case with many games these days, Cellar Door Games has announced a delay for Rogue Legacy 2. The sequel to the beloved roguelite will now arrive in early access on Steam and the Epic Games Store on August 18th. Originally, it was set to release next week on July 23rd.
The reason for the delay is actually quite interesting (football analogies notwithstanding). The development team encountered some “minor setbacks” while preparing for the game’s launch. However, “more importantly, some features got so close to completion that we just absolutely had to see them through. This means more content, more stability, and more bang for your buck come launch day.”
Cellar Door Games originally touted the early access version as launching with two biomes (out of five to seven), four classes of 12, 35 traits, 25 skills with upgrades and 25 sets of equipment split into five sets. Furthermore, there would be 12 enemy types and one boss.
How much more content will be added on top of this remains to be seen. Either way, Rogue Legacy 2’s early access stint is currently planned to last one year with a full release sometime in 2021. We’ll see how much plans change down the line, as well as any potential console ports, so stay tuned for more details.
