We Happy Few Delayed to Summer, Refund Options Now Available

The first person survival horror title will also be unavailable to purchase by January end.

Posted By | On 22nd, Jan. 2018

Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few has seen another delay, this time from April to Summer 2018. Following a studio review of the game, the developer decided to take more time to polish it. Even more interesting is the fact that Compulsion is offering refunds for anyone who purchased the game on Steam, whether they purchased it before or after the controversial price increase, and regardless of time played.

To that end, new players will also be unable to purchase the game on Steam by January end. The developer said that, “We don’t want new players to have the same frustration, so we’re temporarily disabling the option to buy on Steam. We will re-enable the buy button once we’re closer to launch when more info and materials on the game will have been released, giving players more clarity on what they can expect in the full version of We Happy Few.”

We Happy Few was funded through Kickstarter in 2016 before making its way to Steam Early Access in 2016. It’s since been available for PC via Early Access and Xbox One via the Game Preview program. Along with delays, Compulsion attracted controversy by announcing a price increase and publishing deal with Gearbox Software. A PS4 release is also in development and will be available alongside the Xbox One and PC releases this Summer.
