Early Access Delayed
We are currently facing a hurdle, which is that Sandrock needs to get a local rating certification required for us to be able to publish the game online. We had hoped for the license to have been issued before May, but it’s currently looking like it won’t make that date. This means that we will not be able to release Sandrock into Early Access until we have this certification.
It is not clear how long it will take for us to get the license, but we are hoping for the best and we are preparing for the launch so that when we get it, the game can be released on short notice.
Despite the upsetting news, our studio will take this as an opportunity to keep developing and polishing the game, so we can give all our players a better experience on release.
In the meanwhile, we ask for your patience and understanding while we keep at it as we keep pouring all of our love and creativity into Sandrock. Development progress is going full steam ahead.
What does this mean for Beta players?
We know, we know, you’re eager to jump into Sandrock and start streaming and sharing memories! We’d love to share Sandrock with everyone right now, but we have to apologize and ask for your patience.
The NDA will remain in effect until further notice, and when certification is obtained, we will announce the date for Early Access. By then we will also begin to lift the NDA, allowing Beta players exclusive rights to start live-streaming and sharing screenshots and other content for at least one month before Early Access begins.
By the time Sandrock launches into Early Access, it will have more content, features, optimization, and overall fun than the Beta did, which makes for a better experience for everyone! It’ll be worth the wait. The next build is coming at the end of March, so there’s that to look forward to.
Thanks for your patience!
