Action-RPG Flintlock: The Siege Of Dawn has been delayed until 2024

"We want to update our fans on the development of Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn. To make Flintlock the absolute best experience it can be at launch, we have made the decision to move the game’s release to 2024," the game's Twitter account tweeted yesterday. "It’s important to our whole team that Flintlock is a special experience, and we owe it to ourselves and to all of you who have been following the game since we announced to make it the most impressive and unforgettable game it can be."

Flintlock is a third-person action-RPG with a Souls-style currency system, in which you gain 'Reputation' by hacking monsters, lose it all when you die, but can collect it again on your next life.
