Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is currently available for current-gen platforms (check out our review here) but faced a short delay with its Xbox One and PS4 versions. Despite Frogwares assuring that they would arrive a few weeks later, the previous-gen versions are now set to release in Q1 2022. In a new statement on Twitter, the developer noted it was “making good progress.”
Regarding the first delay, Frogwares said that, “We needed to take a bit more time to polish and test the game on older hardware to deliver appropriate performance. This is our top priority, and we’re doing our best to make sure that the release is of a proper quality and well-optimized.” It thanked fans for their understanding and support.
As a sort of origin story for Sherlock Holmes, Chapter One focuses on a younger version of the detective, who heads to Cordona to investigate his mother’s death. Conspiracies and corruption abound though so Holmes must work together with his childhood friend Jon to learn the truth. There are several cases to crack and like previous titles, the player must gather evidence to pursue a hypothesis before accusing a suspect. For more details, check out some gameplay here.
