Victorian fantasy survival game Nightingale has been delayed once again. The game was revealed at The Game Awards in 2021, and developer studio Inflexion Games announced that early access would launch in late 2022. However, plans did not go as expected, and the title was delayed to the first half of 2023. Now, the game has missed the target once again and has been delayed by a recent statement by the dev.
Nightingale’s Delayed Again, Early Access Release Date Moved To Fall
Aaryn Flynn, CEO of Nightingale developer Inflexion Games, said that the upcoming game’s early access launch date had been moved to the fall of this year. Although Flynn did not fully explain why the game missed the target once again, he said that they would take into account the invaluable feedback they received from the players and make the game much more solid. He also pointed out that they will have the opportunity to upgrade the title to Unreal Engine 5.2 this time.

”After many discussions with our team, we’ve come to the decision to move the Early Access release date for Nightingale to Fall (Northern Hemisphere, Spring in the Southern Hemisphere) this year. The reason for the shift is simple: our playtest process is working. The feedback we’ve been receiving from players has been invaluable, and the extra time will allow us to continue the progress we’ve been making without it compromising our team’s health. We thank the community for their continued patience and support, and we look forward to sharing more of the game in the upcoming weeks and months.”
Although this decision seems to disappoint the players, Inflexion seems to have pretty logical reasons. Fans are particularly excited about Unreal Engine 5.2 and are looking forward to the early access release date.
Nightingale is currently in development.
