[Update]: After a brief delay, Rogue Legacy 2 has now made its way to Steam Early Access!

Rogue Legacy 2 was originally supposed to launch into Steam Early Access this July 23rd, but alas, it has now been delayed until August 18th. The reason, as you might imagine, is that the developers need a little bit more time in order to get everything polished up and ready to go.

"Game development is a lot like football," reads the brief announcement. "It's weird, unpredictable, and we don't know the rules. And just like football, when you get the ball, sometimes you've just gotta run with it."

"While stabilizing the game for launch, we've run into some minor setbacks, but more importantly, some features got so close to completion that we just absolutely had to see them through. This means more content, more stability, and more bang for your buck come launch day. In our opinion, the game is already good. But these few extra weeks will help us turn this football into a homerun!"

As for what exactly you can expect to see from the upcoming Early Access launch, that you can find out through one of the recent trailers. Have a peek:
