Abandon Ship Delayed to Early 2018; New 30 Minutes Gameplay Video Unveiled


UK indie developer Fireblade Software decided to delay their Abandon Ship game to early 2018. It was supposed to launch on Steam Early Access before the end of this year.

Team Lead Gary Burchell explained in the press release:

Sable Review – I’m Sabling Away

Abandon Ship is a very systems-driven game, which is a fantastic fit for Early Access. We’re really looking forward to getting feedback and balancing the game with our community.
We’re committed to delivering an extremely high-quality experience, and to ensuring that even our initial release is as feature-complete and polished as possible. So far, the response from our play-testers has been exceptionally positive, but why stop there? With a little extra time, we can make the game even better.

You can find out more about Abandon Ship from our previous coverage as well as following the game on Steam. While you wait, Fireblade Software shared a new 30 minutes long Let's Play gameplay video.
