Humankind has been delayed to August

Oh, the humanity

It looks like Humankind will have to wait. The new historical strategy game from Amplitude Studios is being delayed to Aug. 17, 2021 for a little more fine tuning.

In a press release today, the studio says it will be focusing on improving certain areas of work identified by the community during its recent Lucy OpenDev session. The team will be working on pacing, accessibility, diplomacy, AI, and more that’s all outlined in detail in a new dev blog.

Additionally, some extra free content is being added for those who pre-order the game in the form of avatar sets of both “Lucy” and author Edgar Allen Poe.

Amplitude Studios is also currently working on Endless Dungeon, a squad-based tactical roguelite revealed last December, and has previously worked on the Endless series. Given their experience in the 4X space with Endless Space and Endless Legend—a personal favorite of mine—hopefully the extra time will help Humankind deliver on its promises.
