Promising indie title, Song of Horror has been delayed on PS4 and Xbox One until early 2021, as announced by Raiser Games and Protocol Games.  Song of Horror was supposed to release this month in time for Halloween, so to suddenly delay the game by at least three months is a little concerning, especially as the game is already available on PC, releasing over five episodes since Halloween of 2019.

No exact reasons were given for the console delay, other than a statement saying that it was due to “multiple factors led to the difficult decision to move the launch date back, with both parties (Raiser and Protocol Games) keen to ensure the console versions deliver the best possible experience for gamers. As a result, more development time is required to ensure Song of Horror fans are treated to the game they deserve.

Which makes me think, how much of a bad state is this console in to have suddenly delayed it, especially when you consider that the PC version was quite well received?  Unless its being delayed for next-gen?  But at the end of the day, this happens and I have no doubts it’s for the better of the game.  We’ll update you once we hear any further news on Song of Horror.

Song of Horror: Complete Edition will release early 2021 for PS4 and Xbox One.
