Capybara Games’ latest game Below, which was slated for release this Summer, has been delayed once again, this time with no definitive release date given.

The rogue-like adventure has been through a slew of delays, with the game having been originally slated to release in 2014 before being pushed to 2015 and finally Summer of 2016, but in a statement released on their official website, the developers stated that after a lot of “soul searching” they decided to delay the game once again, this time going dark until they’ve settled on a final release date once and for all.

You can read the full statement from Capybara Games below:

“We told you BELOW would be out this summer. Our team worked hard to make that deadline a reality. But after a strong push, we’ve decided it isn’t ready.

“We did a lot of soul searching. We knew we wanted to get it into your hands as soon as possible. We knew the game was there, and we’re super proud of it, but we also knew it needed more time to make sure it lives up to our studio’s standards, and the quality that you expect from our games. From the very beginning, BELOW has been our most ambitious undertaking, and we’re just not quite done excavating its depths, or polishing all of its facets.

“Instead of giving you a new, loose release window, we will be going dark while we take the time that we need to complete BELOW without compromise. The next time you see a major BELOW update, that means our game has a firm release date, which we’ll share.
Making games is hard but rewarding work. Accepting, even after this long development, that the game needs more time is difficult, but it’s important that we are honest with ourselves as creators, and with you, the players.

“We’re sorry we let you down with yet another delay. But in the end, we need to make certain that the hard work we’ve put into this game turns into something you’ll love, and to us that unfortunately means keeping BELOW in the oven a while longer, until it truly is ready.

“Thanks for the continued support, and see you on the other side.”
