Sable’s Release Date
As talked about previously, Sable was first revealed with the PC Gaming Show and Xbox E3 in 2018 and had a possible release date somewhere in 2019. But it couldn’t make it by then, hence made the possible release date to be pushed into 2020, which also didn’t happen. Now it’s almost a month into 2021, and certain hints are marking a 2021 release date for the game. We can find that on Sable’s official page on Stam with a ‘Planned Release Date: 2021’.
Gregorios Kythreotis, one of the two members of Shedworks studio, has talked about the release date in his recent blog post. He said that they had assumed the game would take two years in development but that estimate resulted to be very inaccurate. The game they were aiming for needs a lot of work and time to make as they don’t want to hurry and ruin the actual idea.
