Looking forward to musical-action game No Straight Roads on Switch next month? Unfortunately, it looks like you’ll need to wait a little longer.
The game’s director Wan Hazmer revealed today that Metronomik will be delaying the game from its original 30 June 2020 launch date. This was in part due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis worldwide, which forced the studio to push the game’s release to ‘later in the Summer’ instead.
You can take a closer look at Hazmer’s message below, along with a full transcript (thanks to Gematsu):
“Like you, we were very excited for the June 30 release of No Straight Roads, especially now that we were able to tell everyone that we are releasing the game on multiple platforms. However, based on recent information, due to the complications that arose from the global pandemic that we’re facing today, we’ve had to make the heartbreaking decision to delay the release of the game until later in the summer.
We know that is going to disappoint a lot of you who can’t wait to play the game next month. However, we are trying our best to make the delay short. And we are trying our best to get the game in your hands as soon as possible. Now you will see the release date listed at retailer sites as August 31, but that is just a placeholder date. Once we have some information on the release date, then we will let you know immediately.
From all of us at Metronomik, we thank you for you patience and support. We saw your reactions to our recent trailers, and you are fantastic—your fan art, your tweets, your YouTube comments—we value every one of them. Which is why I find this news to be very unfortunate. So I’m terribly sorry for this delay. We can’t wait for you to play the game later this summer, but until then stay safe and healthy. Thank you.”
—Wan Hazmer, Game Director
