Gungrave G.O.R.E. had a release window of December 2019 but it has been delayed to 2020. Iggymob decided to delay the game in order to make a “cooler game” for the fans.
Here’s the message from director Kay and producer Jun:
Hello, all the Gungrave fans! Long-time no see and I hope every one of you is doing well.
Gungrave G.O.R.E. was going to be released in December 2019 but we moved the release date to 2020.
The trailer we have revealed during the Tokyo Game Show 2019 hit 1 million views in 2 weeks. As of today, the trailer hit 5 million views globally. This motivated us so much.
Fans from the past keep supporting us and those who didn’t know what Gungrave was, now is showing interest in us.
Which gave us the drive to “make the game even cooler than we wanted to make”.
We’ve had hardships and we will face even more but we will not give up and we will present you with “cooler game”.
We would like to mention Sony Interactive Entertainment, Epic Games, Nightow Yasuhiro, and Digic Pictures and all the users who showed us support and wait for the game
we would like to thank all of them for supporting us.
Our dream to make this game amazing became even firmer than before.
We’ve been running and running to find the artists and developers to overcome our current ability for the game.
It took us some time to find them but we were so lucky to find those who agree, support and want to be part of our dream with their abilities. We are confident that the quality will be enhanced working with them and because we get to work with them, those hardships felt like nothing.
Mr. Kamikokyuryo, Mr. Benoit, Mr. Robert and our new signing, Mr. Kawamura give us new inspiration and with them, we are making something great together.
As we were looking into our new members and Gungrave GORE. We realized we can make something greater than we originally planned.
We are moving forward with the thoughts of “make something greater”.
As we went through all these processes, we realized that it isn’t possible to release the game in December 2019.
It can be said by anyone but we decided to move the date because we believe that we can come up with something great with amazing quality.
We will release Gungrave GORE in 2020.
Our staffs see the same goal and same dream, therefore, we have great teamwork within the team we have.
I apologize to those who were looking forward to the game.
However, we will come up with something great so stay tuned!
It’s almost Christmas! I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday
The last time we heard from the developers, they added former-Square Enix artist Isamu Kamikokuryo to the team.
