The Xbox One version of space exploration game ADR1FT has been cancelled, according to developer Three One Zero’s CEO Adam Orth.
Having launched in March for PC and July for PS4, the game had previously been rumoured to arrive on Xbox One in September. Today however, Orth confirmed to New Game Network that the game will no longer appear on Microsoft’s console, adding that he hopes people “are able to find some way to experience and enjoy it on […] other platforms”.
Despite its sci-fi trappings, ADR1FT is typically classified as a ‘walking simulator’, like Dear Esther and Firewatch, in which players must explore a given setting and piece together a story from environmental cues and audio or text narration. For ADR1FT, that environment was a destroyed space station.
After garnering a lot of pre-release praise for its promising aesthetic, story, and gameplay, the title stumbled on release, earning a 5.8/10 here at OnlySP, with our reviewer, Benjamin James, saying that, “[a]lthough ADR1FT does have worthwhile moments,” when “the perception twisting thrill of navigating a 3D space environment wears thin, [it] doesn’t have much left to offer”.
While it will never arrive on the Xbox One, ADR1FT is still available on PC, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PS4.
