ARPG Biomutant is Still a Thing, Developer Says
Experiment 101 says that it hasn't forgotten about Biomutant, the action RPG it first showed off back in 2018. Though the game generated a good amount of buzz following the reveal of its official trailer, there's been essentially nothing to go on since. Both the developer and THQ Nordic, the game's publisher, have remained remarkably quiet about Biomutant.
Breaking the silence, Experiment 101 recently released a statement on the game, saying:
We know that many of you are wondering if the game is still in development. Let us assure you that we’ve never been working harder and more focused on it than now!
We are doing everything we can to make this the best game all of us have ever worked on and that it will be as entertaining and great as we can possibly make it.
We can only hope for your continued support and patience as we complete the final stages of its development.
As some of you might understand or know, the work involved in finishing a game is long, challenging, and unpredictable. The sheer magnitude, size, and length of Biomutant adds to said effort.
We will reveal the release date as soon as everyone at our studio feels confident about hitting that date and that the game is ready for it.
Again, thank you for your understanding and for your continued support and enthusiasm for our game.
From us at Experiment 101.
To provide further context to the official statement, THQ Nordic said that the team developing Biomutant is relatively small, and that it does not want to share information too early.
The never ending question when Biomutant will be released is still owed to all fans out there. The reality is that the team is small, around 20 people, so the finalization takes longer than with a larger team.
THQ Nordic will announce the release date when they are certain they will be able to release a product that can live up to expectations.
The game has been on our radar for while, making our list of most-anticipated RPGs of 2019. Though, we obviously whiffed big time on when it would release.
Outside of the announcement trailer at the top of this article and being playable at PAX 2019, the only other official information we know is that Biomutant will receive a Collector's Edition ($109.99) and an Atomic Edition ($399.99). The latter (seen above) comes with an awesome diorama, soundtrack, and mousepad, among other things.
As of this writing, the Biomutant social media channels are relatively threadbare. One can easily scroll all the way back to 2018 on the game's official Twitter account, though there are some good preview articles about the game to be found along the way.
Hopefully, we won't have to wait too much longer for more official news on the game, including a release date.
