White Paper Games has announced that investigative thriller The Occupation will miss its intended release by a full month.
The game will now launch on March 5, 2019, rather than the previously scheduled February 5.
While specific details of the cause of this postponement have not been revealed, the team has indicated that it stems from needing extra time to ensure the release across the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms.
This delay marks the second for the project. In July last year, the team locked in an October 9, 2018 launch date, before being forced to rethink it.
For anyone unfamiliar with the title, The Occupation casts players as a reporter investigating the motivations surrounding a political act that “threatens to erode civil liberties of the population.”
Given that the game provides a set timeframe, players will have to make choices about the events most pertinent to their investigation. Furthermore, The Occupation promises a high level of replayability thanks to its systems-driven world and reactive NPCs.
Although a Switch port has not been confirmed, White Paper Games previously confirmed that it was “doing tests” on the console.
