UPDATE: Tara seems to have removed her Tweets about the delay, we are working to get in contact with her and Endnight games to see what’s going on.
UPDATE 2: The store page has been updated to say “coming soon” now, rather than having the actual May 22nd release date listed. So it looks like this delay is confirmed. Still no comment from the developers. For those of you commenting that this is fake, why would we post fake news about this? We know you’re excited for the game, and we’re just as confused as you are about what’s going on. We’re doing our job and reporting on it, that’s all.
Welp, that’s a bummer.
It seems The Forest will miss its May 22nd release date on Early Access according to Tara, whose currently the PR representative for Endnight Games. According to Tara, the development team is not comfortable with releasing the Alpha just yet and have decided to delay it just four days ahead of its release.
@SirRyuu There are some members of the team that are uncomfortable with the current state of the alpha.

A new date is being looked at as they hope to release the alpha this month, but that date is not set in stone.
