Syberia 3 Release Pushed to Early 2017

Microids has announced that the release of Syberia 3 has been delayed until the first quarter of 2017.

“Syberia 3 is the third opus of a mythical adventure game saga fueled by a rich universe and a strong identity. After the unprecedented excitement we have seen for this game, we decided to bring even more depth to Kate Walker’s new adventure,” said Elliot Grassiano, Microids’ vice president in the announcement. “We are aware that fans around the world are eager to embody Kate Walker again but we need additional time to provide them with an adventure that can live up to their expectations in this fascinating universe created by Benoit Sokal.”

In addition, Syberia’s creator, Benoit Sokal, expressed both his disappointment in the delay and acknowledgement in giving the game more time to live up to expectations:

“I am obviously disappointed that Syberia 3 is delayed because we would like to release our games as soon as the storyline is written, but I’m also relieved that Microïds has taken the decision to postpone the game’s launch because it is essential to offer players the best gaming experience possible. We decided to add even more cinematics to this new fiction, more optional narrative sequences as well as new languages for the voice-over, which represents considerable work for teams.”

Syberia 3 is to be released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac.
