[Update #2]: After exactly a year in Early Access, Sons Of The Forest's Version 1.0 has now been unleashed!

[Update]: In a bit of an unexpected, though not unwelcome twist, Sons of the Forest has now launched into Early Access instead of going for a 'proper' release.

If you were eagerly awaiting to dive into The Forest's sequel this October, I'm afraid I have some bad news to deliver. According to the latest developer update, Sons of the Forest has now been delayed yet again, though thankfully this time around we've been given an actual release date to latch onto!

"Due to the scope of our new game Sons Of The Forest, it has been hard to pinpoint an exact release date, and today we have to delay one last time," explains the brief announcement. "Giving us time to complete the polish we feel is needed, we will release Feb 23, 2023, priced at $29.99USD."

As for what exactly you can expect to see in terms of gameplay and atmosphere, that you can get a pretty idea of through, ironically enough, the incredibly optimistic original release date trailer. Have a gander:

Should any more delays or other problems come up, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a little bit more about Sons of the Forest over at the official website. Enjoy!
