Hellraid delayed, and now being re-made

If you’ve been wondering what’s going on with Techland’s first-person skeleton thrashing fantasy title, Hellraid, the answer is something along the lines of them not being happy with it.

A statement on the game’s website from the developers says that “Hellraid, in its current shape and form, is not meeting our own expectations for this project.” That could mean a lot of things, from “we’ve got something here, it’s just not quite right” to “oh god … it’s all shit … oh god,” but the immediate result is that Hellraid won’t be appearing this year.

In fact it could be some time, because Techland say they’ve sent the game back to the infamous “drawing board” in order to “invent our dark fantasy title anew.”

While they do that, they will, at the same time, be concentrating on “further expansion of the Dying Light franchise.” That probably makes a lot of sense from a financial point of view, since there’s every indication Dying Light did rather well in the sales department.
