If you’ve been looking forward to grabbing the upcoming physical releases of Monstrum and Adam’s Venture: Origins – we have some unfortunate news for you.
The games’ publisher SOEDESCO has officially announced that the retail versions of both games will see a delay until further notice. This is in view of the current COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, which has led to manufacturing and logistical delays w0rldwide. Thankfully, this will not push back the digital releases of the games.

Rotterdam, The Netherlands – April 20, 2020 – In view of the global developments related to COVID-19, SOEDESCO® is providing an update on the way it’s responding to the outbreak and the related business impact. SOEDESCO is taking all the maximum precautions to ensure the health, safety and well-being of their employees and everyone else involved. This has also led to the decision to postpone some of the physical releases.
Hans van Brakel, Executive Manager at SOEDESCO, said: “Due to recent developments in the market that are beyond our control, we have made the difficult decision to postpone some of the physical releases to a later date. The global crisis has a big impact on logistics, which makes it difficult for us to manufacture, ship and sell physical games right now. However, the digital releases will continue as planned”.
At the moment, these postponed games include the physical versions of Monstrum on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One and Adam’s Venture: Origins on Nintendo Switch. Since the digital versions remain unaffected, SOEDESCO will soon announce the digital release dates of these two games. A new release date for the physical versions has yet to be determined. SOEDESCO hopes it won’t be a long delay and they will update the community as soon as they have new information to share.
We’ll report back if and when we get an update on these physical releases. Stay tuned.
