The RiME release date will be sometime in 2017. This time, the highly anticipated game has new publishers. With new publishers come new available platforms.
When RiME was first announced back in 2013, it was revealed that Sony would be publishing the game as an exclusive for the PS4. Back in March of this year, developer Tequila Works announced that Sony was no longer the publisher.
In an announcement from Grey Box and Six Foot, the two companies are partnering up to publish the upcoming adventure game. “From its very first moving reveal, RiME has been a game that has excited and fascinated our team,” said Christian Svensson, COO of Six Foot. “Tequila Works has put an immense amount of passion and creativity into shaping a beautiful and deeply personal universe, and we’re all excited to share that experience with gamers next year.”
While we don’t have an official RiME release date yet, we do know that it is coming next year. Better yet, additional information about the gameplay and platform availability will be revealed early 2017.
If you somehow missed the original trailers for RiME, it is a single-player puzzle adventure game. You play as a young boy who has shipwrecked on a mysterious island. Using your brain to uncover the secrets, RiME features a subtle narrative and an incredible visual design.
“We’ve always wanted RiME to captivate players’ imaginations, capturing that feeling of being a child and experiencing the wonders of a bedtime story for the first time,” said Raúl Rubio Munárriz, CEO & creative director of Tequila Works. “We’re so excited to find in Grey Box and Six Foot partners just as eager as we are to make that vision for such a personal project a reality.”
We’ll have to wait until next year for an official RiME release date, but in the meantime, it is nice to know the game is no longer trapped in development hell.
