Techland Has Either Cancelled Hellraid Or Put Its Release on Hold

Techland was making a dark fantasy action game called Hellraid planned for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this year, but it seems that the developer has changed its mind, at least for now. They’ve announced that Hellraid’s development has been put on hold, and that it will not be released this year. Whether or not it will actually release at all in general is currently unknown. This is what Techland had to say about the hold or possible cancellation:

“We would like to officially announce that our dark fantasy FPP game Hellraid will not be released this year as previously planned, and the development of the game has been put on hold. In the recent months we conducted an internal analysis and came to the conclusion that Hellraid, in its current shape and form, is not meeting our own expectations for this project. Therefore, we decided the best course of action would be to send it back to the drawing board and invent our dark fantasy title anew. We will consolidate our development resources and focus on further expansion of our Dying Light franchise,”- Techland

This likely isn’t good news for Hellraid. Maybe it will be retooled for a later release, but it doesn’t seem very likely from the way Techland spoke about it. I guess it’s more zombie games for now from good ol’ Techland.
