We Happy Few is Delayed Again

A psychedelic horror game from Compulsion Games and Gearbox Publishing, We Happy Few will take you to 60's English town, Wellington Wells for a survival experience of a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy". The game had a release date set for April 13, 2018 to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide. However, if you were looking forward to get into that adventure, you will have to wait a bit longer than that.

We Happy Few is Delayed Again

Below is an important production update from developer Compulsion Games by producer Guillaume Provost and COO Sam Abbott that sheds light on the matter we are talking about here.

The high hopes of entering in an alternate reality jolly old England of the 1960's through the game We Happy Few is once again delayed and the developers got reason for that. So far, they are already done completing all the content they intended for the game but after some observation, they realized that the title could use some more work to be better than it is now and for that to happen, they will need some more time to give it a polish.

All Compulsion Games wants to do is to change and rebuild the first few hours of We Happy Few to give it their desired look and that pushes the game to summer of 2018. The game featured three different campaigns to play with and one of them needs some more work, which is the protagonist Arthur’s story. So, the dev team is pausing and getting back to it again to give meanings to his narrative. The end of the video also reveals another main character of the game, Sally and there is still one more to reveal.

Beginning with a Kickstarter campaign, We Happy Few successfully entered Early Access on Steam and for Xbox One. The game already left a bad impression to the eagerly anticipating players when it was priced for $60 for being a "full sized, retail game". Developers are offering a refund opportunity for anyone who purchased the game on Early Access and they will remove the game from Steam on February 1 until a later day near release.
