    Early Access Release Date / Delay

    Hi everyone,

    I hate to bring bad news but unfortunately we're going to have to delay the Early Access launch of the game for a while longer. We're making good progress on the game but in it's current state I feel like we're not ready for Early Access yet.

    There are two reasons for this - the first is that I don't want to disappoint people who are clearly keen to play the game by serving up something sub-standard, and the second is that I'm concerned we'll get a bit of a battering in the Steam reviews and potentially have to carry those negative reviews for the entire lifetime of Xenonauts 2 (even if we later fix all those issues).

    We're not quite sure how long this delay will be for right now. There's not actually that many big features we still have to implement so it could be as short as six weeks if everything goes smoothly - but that rarely happens with a game this complex, so I'm estimating around three months.

    If people understand the game is still quite rough and are still keen to buy it before the Early Access launch, we're looking at a third party service called Xsolla that would allow you to access our Closed Beta builds immediately and then get a Steam key as soon as the Early Access launch does happen. I know this isn't the ideal solution but hopefully it'll be better than nothing.

    Apologies once again for the delay; I know it sucks that we keep moving the release date back and we're working as hard as we can to get everything ready for you guys!

    Interesting. Haven't been following the Xenonauts 2 updates for a while, but I did enjoy the first game a lot, so I'll definitely keep an eye on it.
