The Thaumaturge has captured the interest of many PC gamers, thanks to the horror aesthetic and gameplay similar to the older Fallout titles. However, with February being incredibly busy for video games, developer Fool’s Theory has decided to delay their RPG to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.
On Twitter, the game’s official account confirmed that this Fallout-like RPG will be delayed to March 4, due to how massive February has been. Fans need not worry, as the statement confirms that this game is finished, but the crazy number of big games coming out this month means it might get ignored.
“With February’s busy launch period, we've decided to move the release of the Thaumaturge to March 4th, 2024. The game is complete, but we want to give it space so it can be enjoyed the way we believe it deserves,” wrote the devs. “See you in 1905 Warsaw and thank you for your patience!”
Fans interested in The Thaumaturge are mildly disappointed by the delay, though most will agree that this is a good move overall. Smaller games like this could easily get ignored and this month has so many big games that we think a delay is more than welcome.
Just in case anyone needs a recap, the first two days of February gave us Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Persona 3 Reload, and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is also coming out at the end of the month, essentially confirming that February is a bad month for smaller games.
The waiting period should be enough as The Thaumaturge looks like a quality Fallout-like RPG with a unique setting. We don’t get a lot of games like the old Fallout titles anymore, as the recent Bethesda entries are now first-person RPGs.
Gamers will be able to play The Thaumaturge on March 4. The RPG will be available on PS5, Xbox Series, and PC.
