Developer Thomas Happ has confirmed to IGN that Axiom Verge 2 has been pushed to Q3 2021, delivering a second delay to the in-development sequel.
While Happ couldn’t say anything else about the delay, he told IGN that Axiom Verge 2 “will be better for the additional time.” As consolation for delaying the game yet again, Happ released a free making-of documentary filmed and directed by 2 Player Productions, the team most recognized for working on the Double Fine Adventure documentary about Broken Age.
The documentary is streamable on IGN and will hit Steam for free “soon.”
Axiom Verge 2, the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2015 metroidvania Axiom Verge, was originally due out last year but suffered a delay in October 2020 that pushed the game to “the first half of 2021.” This recent delay marks the second one Axiom Verge 2 has received since its 2019 announcement. It’s still slated to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC.
