Rise up dead man! Hunt: Showdown will be coming to three major platforms in 2019! IT IS CONFIRMED.
Hunt for PC and Xbox will launch on August 27th, 2019 for 39.99 EUR/USD. Meanwhile, PlayStation players will be seeing their own full release of the online game this Fall. In addition to this digital release, we will be partnering with Koch Media to bring the retail version of Hunt to stores worldwide.
Hunt first launched in Early Access on Steam in February 2018 and on Xbox Game Preview in May 2019. Both platforms gave us the unique opportunity to front a community-driven development process, by taking player feedback onboard and integrating it into the game's development roadmap. Since that first release in February 2018, we've released nearly 20 updates and patches, including a new boss, a new map, two new times of day, additional AI, Quick Play, and more than a dozen weapons.
“Developing a game alongside such a passionate community has been so rewarding. It has taken us in new directions, and really inspired us to put everything we have into Hunt," said Lead Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram. “Now the time has come for the full release, and we couldn't be more excited. We won't forget the support this community has given us."
Meanwhile, Koch Media will be handling Hunt: Showdown's physical distribution for PC, Xbox, and PS4, for all those players who want to own a physical copy of the game.
“Joining forces with Crytek for this amazing multiplayer game is exciting for everybody in the Koch Media family," said Koch Media's Head of Marketing Stephan Schmidt. “The proven track record of the team in the FPS genre and the unique approach to multiplayer gaming gives us confidence that Hunt not only fits perfectly in our broad line up, but also serves a strong need in the market for fresh ideas. The close cooperation of the team with the community ever since the first release fuel the motivation of our global Koch Media teams, and we will support this title with all our experience in the retail market."
We can't wait to see you in the Bayou.
