Third-person co-op action roguelike, Necropolis, has been delayed for consoles until “later this summer,” developer Harebrained Schemes has announced. The title was originally scheduled for release on PC in March but was delayed for a simultaneous launch across all platforms. That won’t be happening now as the PC version is still on track to release next week. 

Speaking to Eurogamer, Harebrained said that it won’t have console code for “several weeks” but did confirm that its publishing deal for consoles with Bandai Namco still stands. 

In case you missed it, here’s what the Dark Souls-inspired title is all about:

In NECROPOLIS, you play as a nameless adventurer attempting to escape a living, magical dungeon that reconstructs itself each time you play, with only one way out – down. Craft, equip, explore, and fight to stay alive as you delve deeper and face ever-greater threats in the twisting halls and endless chasms of the NECROPOLIS. Have no doubt; you’re going to die – often! – but you’ll improve your combat skills, available upgrades, and dungeon know-how with every playthrough, bringing you one step closer to the exit. (Warning: “Just one more time” mindset can be addicting.)

We’ll update our readers when a new release date is announced.
