Frostpunk 2 developer 11bit Studios has denied an apparent leak of the game's release date.

The leak occurred via the Steam API, which holds secret release dates for upcoming games straight from their developers, TechRaptor reported earlier this week. These dates aren't shown to the public, and are not necessarily accurate — they typically serve more as rough estimates than nailed down dates. Frostpunk 2, for example, is listed as being released in January 2024.

Release dates for Kerbal Space Program 2, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 appeared alongside the one shown for Frostpunk 2.

11bit Studios says that, at the very least, the launch date shown for its project is incorrect.

"As we heard today, information about the #Frostpunk2 launch date leaked into the public space," the studio tweeted Wednesday. "We assure you that any pieces of information that aren't coming straight from the Administration offices are false.

"Thank you for your attention. Liars shall be punished," it concluded.

Their statement lines up with how far off some of the other listed dates are from the likely releases of the games in question. Kerbal Space Program 2, for instance, is listed as being released in December 2021, a date that came and went without a Kerbal release.

11bit revealed Frostpunk 2 in August 2021. The studio has yet to release official information about when the sequel will arrive.
