Development studio Endnight Games announced it has been forced to delay its The Forest sequel, Sons of the Forest, until Feb. 23, 2023.
The studio wrote the following in its announcement, published to Twitter on Wednesday: "Due to the scope of our new game Sons Of The Forest, it has been hard to pinpoint an exact release date, and today we have to delay one last time. Giving us time to complete the polish we feel is needed, we will release Feb 23, 2023, priced at $29.99USD."
Sons of the Forest aims to push everything Endnight Games established in The Forest to new heights. The Forest offered survival and base building atop an unusual, freeform narrative that players could grapple with on their own timelines. The sequel will add NPC elements, mutant enemies, and shifting seasons, and players will be able to play solo or with a group of friends.
The story remains largely under wraps, but the game's Steam store page has this to say: "Sent to find a missing billionaire on a remote island, you find yourself in a cannibal-infested hellscape. Craft, build, and struggle to survive, alone or with friends, in this terrifying new open-world survival horror simulator."
