Biomutant won't commit to a release date, but it's doing fine


Experiment 101 is finishing ‘the final stages of its development’

Biomutant is one of the more out-there mainstream-facing games I’ve seen in the last few years, and ever since playing a brief preview build, I’ve wanted to know more. The open-world action-RPG blends a lot of different styles and influences in a way that’s messy, and textured, but still undeniably fun.

I’m not the only one who’s curious to know what’s up with Biomutant. It’s been unusually quiet, which tends to spur a sense of dread. The developer, Experiment 101, recently broke its silence.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the studio said it knows fans are getting antsy – and to hold tight. “We are doing everything we can to make this the best game all of us have ever worked on,” the post said.

“We can only hope for your continued support and patience as we complete the final stages of its development. As some of you might understand or know, the work involved in finishing a game is long, challenging, and unpredictable. The sheer magnitude, size, and length of Biomutant adds to said effort.”

“We will reveal the release date as soon as everyone at our studio feels confident about hitting that date and that the game is ready for it,” the developer continued. “Again, thank you for your understanding and for your continued support and enthusiasm for our game.”

If everything comes together like I hope it will, I think Biomutant is going to catch people off-guard.
