Ukrainian developer Frogwares has made the decision to delay their upcoming game, Sherlock Holmes The Awakened by a few weeks.

While development of the game since April 2022 had always been challenging due to the war, the last 5 months starting in October 2022 have been extremely difficult on the team.

Initially Frogwares was aiming for a late February / early March release window but the relentless strikes on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine have forced the team to work around continual blackouts and redo their entire production pipeline. A delay of a few weeks moving the game into late March / April 2023 was therefore decided.

“We had been trying so hard to make our planned release window, but the continual interruptions to power on top of the frequent missile attacks since October meant we had to replan and reschedule almost every month. We’re now at the spot we’re the game is content complete so we need to move into doing final QA, polishing and launch setup. To say we are tired of how much all this has derailed our day to day work since the start of winter is an understatement. But we’re doing our best to push on. Once we feel we are maybe a month away from release, we’ll be able to announce our full release date with an exact day.”
