Orichalcum Pictures and VR Connection have announced that their mythical VR puzzle adventure RYTE: The Eye of Atlantic has been delayed until 27 January 2021.
All the way back in September, we discussed the brand new mythical adventure title from Orichalcum Pictures and VR Connection: RYTE: The Eye of Atlantis.
We had previously expected the game, which was originally set to release yesterday (8th of December 2020) on PC virtual reality (VR) headsets and will support Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index headsets.
However, in a statement released this week by Orichalcum Pictures and developers VR Connection has revealed that fans will need to wait until January 27, 2021:
Due to the remote work adjustments during the COVID-19 second lockdown in France which were necessary to keep everyone healthy, the current version of Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis did not quite reach the technical quality standards that the studio and us have set and wanted to achieve for the release on December 8th.
With so much work and dedication put into this project we feel we owe the players to deliver the most polished experience and decided to postpone the release to January 27, 2021.
We apologize to everyone who was expecting the game today. This decision was not an easy one to make. But achieving excellence is our goal and we apologize about the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
The game was announced earlier this year as something of a spiritual successor to Cyan World's classic point-and-click adventure Myst. Oddly, news of RYTE: The Eye of Atlantis came shortly after an announcement that Myst would be reimagined in virtual reality.
It's certainly a bummer that we'll need to wait an extra month or so for RYTE, but it shouldn't be too long until you're exploring the mystical city of Atlantis.
And if you're looking for something to keep you occupied, Tomorrow Games have just announced that the fantastic Grapple Tournament VR has had its price slashed by about half!
