We have made it to November, and it’s got to the point where a lot of developers are now having to decide if they release their game this year, or hold off until 2022.
We saw just yesterday how PlatinumGames made the tough decision to delay the release of its shoot ’em up, Sol Cresta, and now today Yacht Club Games and Nitrome have announced they will be pushing back the release of Shovel Knight Dig.
In a development update on the official Yacht Club website, a message explained how the team needed a “little more time” than the initially projected release window, and would now be launching the title in 2022.
“With 2021 coming to a close, we wanted to provide an update regarding Shovel Knight Dig! Development is going great, but we need a little more time than our initial projected release window! We look forward to delving into Dig with you in 2022!”
To make up for this, the team revealed Scrap Knight, who will also feature in the upcoming release, Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon.
“Picker in hand, Scrap Knight sorts worthy valuables for sale and keeps the truly special stuff slung over her shoulder in an enormous bag. She has spent her recent days sifting through the shifting refuse pile known as the Magic Landfill, a sorcerer’s rubbish heap located deep below the earth’s surface. The Hexcavators find her useful because she can recover most anything, but Scrap Knight has ideas of her own. Make haste when digging through her mystical junk yard, danger lurks in the clutter!”
