SOEDESCO announced today that due to Covid-19 it is postponing all future physical release for the foreseeable future.

The current Covid-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on logistics and means that the ability to not only distribute but also manafacture physical copies of games has become extremley difficult.

Whilst the release of physical copies has been put back to as yet unannounced date digital releases remain unaffected and will continue to go ahead as planned

Hans van Brakel, Executive Manager at SOEDESCO, said: “Due to recent developments in the market that are beyond our control, we have made the difficult decision to postpone some of the physical releases to a later date. The global crisis has a big impact on logistics, which makes it difficult for us to manufacture, ship and sell physical games right now. However, the digital releases will continue as planned”. 

At the moment, these postponed games include the physical versions of Monstrum on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as Adam’s Venture: Origins on Nintendo Switch.

Since the digital versions remain unaffected, SOEDESCO will soon announce the digital release dates of these two games. A new release date for the physical versions has yet to be determined. SOEDESCO hopes it won’t be a long delay and they will update the community as soon as they have new information to share.
