SEGA and Amplitude Studios SAS have announced that ENDLESS DUNGEON will be delayed on PC, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S until October 19. Early access will be available from October 17 for players who pre-order ENDLESS DUNGEON “Last Wish” Digital Edition on PC and Console and a Nintendo Switch release date will be announced in due course. Players who have pre-purchased on digital storefronts can receive refunds where applicable in line with platform policy. Originally planned to launch on May 18, this additional time will allow Amplitude to better incorporate community feedback essential to such an innovative game and continue in the footsteps of its previous titles in the award-winning ENDLESS Universe. Drawing on player feedback, Amplitude will work on improvements including balancing, meta-progression, onboarding, and general polishing to create the ultimate roguelite experience for players.
Romain de Waubert, General Manager and CCO of Amplitude Studios said: “We’re grateful and honored that players are looking forward to playing ENDLESS DUNGEON. The feedback we’ve received across our OpenDev sessions so far has proved to us that we truly have something special on our hands and we want to ensure we have time for the game to reach its full potential.
Players have always been at the heart of our studio’s philosophy and releasing ENDLESS DUNGEON in October will allow us the extra time to keep working with the community and polishing the game for an amazing day-one experience.
We can’t wait for fans of the Universe and newcomers alike to experience ENDLESS DUNGEON’s unique gameplay combination of rogue-lite, tactical action and tower defense.”
Since ENDLESS DUNGEON was announced, players have been part of its development process via Amplitude’s co-development platform Games2Gether. Members have taken part in OpenDev sessions to play the game at different stages in its development and offered their input on specific features touching on everything from the core loop to the meta-progression, more information here. Amplitude will continue to process and implement this feedback to ensure that ENDLESS DUNGEON players have the best experience at launch.
To thank the community for their patience as the game gets over the finish line, Amplitude will include some extra free content for those who have pre-purchased the game on PC, and for those among the first to purchase at release on console.
