Today, Orichalcum Pictures, a hybrid production company founded to explore archaeology through a multimedia lens, and developer VR Connection announced a slight delay for their ancient Greece and Myst-inspired VR adventure game Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis. The official statement reads as follows:
“Due to the remote work adjustments during the COVID-19 second lockdown in France which were necessary to keep everyone healthy, the current version of Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis did not quite reach the technical quality standards that the studio and we have set and wanted to achieve for the release on December 8th. With so much work and dedication put into this project we feel we owe the players to deliver the most polished experience and decided to postpone the release to January 27, 2021. We apologize to everyone who was expecting the game today. This decision was not an easy one to make. But achieving excellence is our goal and we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience”
The new release date for SteamVR and Oculus headsets is January 27, 2021. Players can wishlist the game on its official Steam store now.
