Survival games are booming in 2024. We have had two major releases in one month, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Nightingale, the steampunk fantasy survival game from ex-BioWare developers, is next on the list. In fact, if you were waiting for it, we have good news: its launch has been brought forward.
You may not be very familiar with Nightingale, but it is one of those titles that can surprise in 2024. Although Palworld’s popularity in the survival genre is difficult to match, we should not overlook a concept of survival and action in a fantastic atmosphere that looks promising.
But beyond the advantages of the game, the important thing here is that the release date has been brought forward. A surprise not only for those of us who were waiting for the game but for the industry, since we rarely see a situation like this. So, update your calendar: Nightingale will hit digital stores on Tuesday, February 20, two days before its official date.
As the colleagues at 3DJuegosPC point out, the case of Nightingale is unusual simply because we are used to seeing delays, not advances. However, according to Aaryn Flynn, the game director, the reason behind this 48-hour preview is to have more time for work.
There are no leaks or ulterior motives; simply they want to be prepared. Not only does Nightingale look great, but having a team of ex-BioWare members gives visibility to a project like this. Therefore, all eyes will be on it for the first few days. With this in mind and the attention that comes with it, bringing forward the launch gives them more time to resolve any issues that may arise.
