Deponia developer Daedalic Entertainment has announced that their upcoming role-playing game, Blackguards, has been delayed until early next year. Originally scheduled to launch in November, the studio has revealed that they will be bumping the release date back to January in order to “optimize performance, implement new features and also polish the visuals,” according to senior producer Kai Fiebig. Daedalic is on a bit of a tear in 2013, with the release of both Memoria and Night of the Rabbit earlier this year and Goodbye Deponia this Friday.
In Blackguards, players take on the role of a convicted murderer and guide them and their infamous allies through Aventuria, battling monsters and men in turn-based combat, quaffing potions, and outrunning the law as they seek the source of the land’s ills.
Blackguards is scheduled to launch in January 2014 for PC.
