The release date for Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn has been pushed back to a 2024 window, the game’s developer A44 Games and publisher Kepler Interactive announced. Originally planned to be launched in 2023, it seems like the title simply couldn’t be finished on time.

“To make Flintlock the absolute best experience it can be at launch, we have made the decision to move the game’s release to 2024,” a statement on the game’s official Twitter account reads.

It continues: “We’ve been hard at work crafting a unique and deeply detailed open world brimming with thrilling fights, rewarding exploration and a true sense of discovery. It’s important to our whole team that Flintlock is a special experience, and we owe it to ourselves and to all of you who have been following the game since we announced to make it the most impressive and unforgettable game it can be.”

A44 Games concluded by thanking everyone interested in the game and promising updates soon: “Your ongoing and unwavering support has been incredible. Each of us at A44 Games are humbled and inspired by your excitement for what we are creating and we truly appreciate your patience. We have a lot of exciting things to show you and we’ll have updates for you soon.”

Set to be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is an open-world action RPG played from a third-person perspective, which is why it’s been classified as a Souls-like. Players have various melee weapons and flintlock firearms at their disposal to make short work out of any monsters and enemies they encounter. Magic is another potent means of taking out adversaries, adding a third possible style to players’ toolkits.

A44 Games has described the game as “somewhere in the middle” of Elden Ring and God of War and one team member compared its setting to the Shadow and Bone universe by author Leigh Bardugo. Mixing Napoleonic aesthetics with gods from Mesopotamia, Flintlock definitely features some unique elements.
