The puzzle adventure title, Syberia: The World Before, has been officially delayed and is now no longer expected to release on December 10th. The official announcement came from the official Syberia Twitter team
The main reason for the delay seems to be the need for more development time, which is surprising considering the game was so close to its release.
However, a message regarding the delay was posted and you can read it below..
Dear Syberia fans,
We wish to share some important news regarding the Syberia: The World Before‘s release date.
Initially scheduled for December 10, 2021 on PC, we’ve made a decision to push back the launch to Q1 2022. We soon will release more information about the exact release date.
We are committed to releasing the best possible game offering an immersive adventure which will transport you and remain faithful to the universe of Benoit Sokal. It currently seems necessary to give ourselves a little more time to finalize the development in the best conditions.
We are already very confident and eager to share with you the new adventures of Kate Walker. We are convinced that players will be enthusiastic about the next episode of the series.
Without a doubt, Syberia: The World Before will be one of the major episodes of the Syberia series.
We will make sure to provide you with regular updates.
Syberia: The World Before pits players as a 17-year-old inspiring pianist during the Second World War. Where we will need to explore through time and across several different continents.
The game will now be releasing in Q1 2022 for the PC and at a later date on console.
