Atomic Heart is delayed, now for real: the “BioShock” dystopia in the Soviet Union sets a new release date
Atomic Heart and Scorn save lots of similarities. We are not talking about two identical proposals, in fact they are diametrically opposed in terms of concept and theme, but we are dealing with projects that few gave anything to see them completed. In the case of the Soviet madness of Mundfish, it has been swarming the network since 2018 and although it had planned a premiere for this 2022, finally its studio has announced the consequent delay.
One more delay, a game that leaves 2022. It was at the beginning of this year when the Russian studio announced that its project would arrive before the end of the year, and it was Mundfish himself who announced that, with a view to Polish Y deliver the best possible experiencethe game goes to first quarter of 2023as we can read in the official statement.
Once again, Atomic Hearts remains unknown and despite the fact that it seems that this dreamlike “BioShock” madness is close to seeing the light, it has gone to next year without a release date confirmed beyond a promise to have it ready before March. Even so, we are not left alone with the bad and it is that the shooter has finally found a company to publish and edit it: FocusEntertainment.
The company behind the distribution of A Plague Tale: Requiem or Aliens: Fireteam Elite will be in charge of publishing a game that, in principle, was going to bring Mundfish to all possible markets. This not only supposes a problem, or complication, less for the indie study, but the pressure from a distributor about the product can finally make the game not see a new delay next year.
It should be noted that in terms of delays, Atomic Heart has plenty of experience, although this is the first official calendar movement that it suffers. Last June, the studio categorically denied any rumors about a delay to 2023, as pointed out by the Polish media XGP. It is to be expected that the war situation in Eastern Europe has squandered the studio’s hopes of being able to offer the game on schedule.
