Frogwares’ upcoming investigative horror adventure game The Sinking City has been delayed and won’t see a release until June 27. The reason for this delay? A crowded release schedule. Frogwares wants to ensure that their game doesn’t drop in the middle of a hot release season where video game blockbusters are released, pushing more indie titles to the side. It’s basically the same concept as wanting a movie to open on a different weekend than a Marvel release. Makes total sense.
