Update: The Rogue Prince Of Persia Hits Early Access Later This Month Following Short Delay

Update, 5/13/24:

Evil Empire delayed The Rogue Prince of Persia’s Early Access launch to give its team members, their mothers, and players around the world more time with Hades II. The team said at the time The Rogue Prince of Persia would still hit Early Access this month, and now we know it’s May 27. 

The Rogue Prince of Persia’s new release date is 27th May! If you didn’t see our previous post, the TLDR is to give people time to play Hades 2, including us😄
But if Silksong shadow-drops in the next two weeks we’re burning the whole thing down!

Original story, 5/10/24:

“So it’s been a bit of a crazy week for us,” a statement from Evil Empire reads. “It all started when a little game called Hades II released – you might have have heard of it? Seeing as everyone and their mum is playing that game (including our entire team…and their mums), we have decided to let people have their fun with it before we release The Rogue Prince of Persia. 

“We will still be releasing in May and will be back with a precise date on Monday. While we have every confidence in The Rogue Prince of Persia, it’s not every day that a game in the same genre as you, which is one of the most anticipated upcoming games of 2024, will release into Early Access a week before you plan to do the same. We are not prideful enough to ignore the implications of that, and we truly believe that this short delay is the best decision for us and our Early Access journey.” 

The team says this extra time will be used to polish The Rogue Prince of Persia even more, add “even more cool things,” and fix some bugs. It also notes the Day One patch for the game was getting big and this extra time will give the team more time to test it (and lower the team’s stress as a result).
