We Happy Few Release Delayed Again, Refunds Offered To Early Buyers

We Happy Few

Upcoming indie survival-exploration game We Happy Few has been delayed once again, according to a video posted by developer Compulsion Games.

In this latest update, Compulsion has announced We Happy Few is now ‘content-complete’, however the team wishes to polish its product further, resulting in a new projected release date of mid-2018. In addition, as a response to complaints regarding the title’s price hike, Compulsion has decided to disable further preorders of the game and is offering to refund the price paid by any gamer who purchased the Early Access version of We Happy Few.

An announcement in August 2017 revealed Compulsion Games had partnered with Gearbox Software in an effort to garner the financial support needed to expand We Happy Few into a full, retail-length title. A new release date was set for April 13, 2018, alongside a major price hike that doubled the original cost of the game from USD$30.00 to USD$60.00. While anxious gamers were understandably disgruntled at the price increase, Compulsion Games explained it as a necessity due to the four-fold increase in the development team, as well as the game’s scope and narrative. Kickstarter backers who helped fund the initial creation of We Happy Few, as well as those who purchased the Early Access version, would still receive the full game upon release and some of its downloadable content for free.

First revealed in February of 2015, development of We Happy Few has seen several delays and setbacks. After an initial Kickstarter campaign netted Compulsion Games over USD$250,000.00 to fund creation, an early access version was released on Steam,, the Humble Bundle store, and the Xbox One, with the full game scheduled to go live in the summer of 2017.
