Last year, indie designer Thomas Happ revealed Axiom Verge 2, and provided it an unclear release window of “fall 2020.” However, because it is now fall 2020, an upgrade appears to be in order – something that Happ offered today through this post on the Axiom Verge 2 website. The problem? The video game is postponed to the very first half of 2021. The great news? It still appears like an appealing follow-up to the 2015 initial.

“I had my issues about whether individuals would even care at all about a follow up coming 5 years after the release of the initial,” Happ composes. “Although it’s taking longer than I initially hoped, I am going to do my finest to make certain it’s worth the wait.”

In the post, Happ discusses a few of the factors for the hold-up. Of course, the international pandemic contributes, however so does Axiom Verge 2’s increased aspirations compared to its predecessor. This consists of more smart opponents and less blocky environments, to name a few functions Happ has actually chosen not to ruin. 

No matter when it launches, we’re still delighted to play Axiom Verge 2. The initial got a 9.25 out of 10 evaluation from Game Informer, and we just recently stated it among the very best video games of the generation.
