[UPDATE 8/3/19 – 8:10 PM] Less than 24 hours after IGN’s hands-on preview revealed the game’s new release date, Frogwares and Bigben have confirmed that the game will now release on June 27, 2019.
The team at Frogwares has released a video explaining the reasons for the delay, revealing that due to the high number of AAA releases over the past month and a bit the team decided to move the game’s release to a less crowded month. Furthermore, the delay will allow Frogwares to add additional polish and minor improvements to the game. You can watch the video below:

After weeks of speculation it appears that we finally have a solid (updated) release date for Frogwares and Bigben’s Lovecraftian-inspired game The Sinking City.
Earlier this morning, IGN posted a hands-on preview of the game, with Lucy O’Brien date-dropping June 27 as the game’s release date. Previously the game had been slated for a March 21 release, but when the game’s Steam page replaced the date with a blanket 2019 release window and a recent trailer dropped the release date entirely, it became apparent that the March 21 date was going to pass without the game’s release.
While no official confirmation of the delay has come from either Bigben or Frogwares, it’s hard to imagine IGN going to print with an incorrect date given the team had exclusive access to both a preview build and developers from Frogwares. We anticipate that either the publisher or developer will make an announcement in the coming days.
If you’ve been hanging out for The Sinking City it’s worth giving the preview a read, as it contains new information and previously unseen footage.
The Sinking City is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 27, if IGN is to be believed.
