Xbox one game delayed indefinitely days before launch
A great Xbox One game was delayed indefinitely days before the launch. Slow but safe, the industry is moving away from Xbox One and PS4. At this time, most games are crossed generation launches, but this will change earlier than late. Meanwhile, if you wanted to play Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One in Xbox One, Well, we have bad news. It will no longer come to Xbox One. In six days, on April 28, it will be launched through PS4. The version of Xbox One has “delayed indefinitely”.
According to the frogwares developer, all Xbox One users will be reimbursed to have reserved the game. As for why this version is delayed, it should not be surprising that it is complicated. Frogwares is located in kyiv, Ukraine, so obviously the country’s Russian invasion of the country has substantially interrupted development.
“As some of you have pointed out on our social networks, we have been quite silent in the versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One de S herlock Holmes: Chapter One,” said Frogwares. The good news is that we will launch Sherlock Holmes: chapter on E in PlayStation 4 on April 28, 2022. The bad news is that, unfortunately, we had to make a difficult decision about the game version for Xbox One. Due to circumstances outside Our control, the Xbox One version of Sherlock Holmes: chapter one has been postponed indefinitely. Let’s explain why ».
«Since September of last year until February 2022, we work hard to optimize our PC game and consoles of the previous and current generation. During that time we discovered that the scope of work was greater than evaluated. So last year we made the decision to first launch the versions of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S, and work on the optimization of versions of the previous generation. Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One In the current generation In October, we continue working on the optimization of the Versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We have tried to squeeze as much as possible from the old generation. A lot of invisible work was done, but also as visible as changes in the city map in the Versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE for the game to work better (we cut certain alleys, shortcuts, etc.). And as we approached more and more to finish those versions, the war occurred.
To say that the war had an impact on us is probably the euphemism of the decade. Keeping our personal and mental situation out of this, the war impacted us a lot from the point of view of production. From where we are now, with resources and labor we have, we can launch the PlayStation 4 version of Sherlock Holmes: Chapter on E on April 28. However, we have to postpone the version of Xbox One.
“Say that we are not happy with this, it is to say it subtly. We want to see our games on as many platforms as possible. We see that there are many of you waiting for the version of Xbox One. We are also disappointed because “we have invested time and money in this version that is suspended indefinitely. It is also lost money of possible future income that is important for an independent study like us. If you have booked the game version for Xbox One, and now what? Xbox is informed that you can cancel your order and get a full refund. We know that it is not the result you wanted, but we hope that at least this throws some light on what happened. Once again, thank you all for your patience. And thanks to everyone for their kind words and support. The fact that many of you even offered us a place to stay in your homes is more than ‘wow’. And as always, any comments or question, publish it. We will try to respond as fast as as many as we can; Life is a bit strange at this time ».
Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One debuted last year through PC, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC. In other words, it is available on some Xbox platforms, but for now, Xbox One is not one of these platforms.
