It's been a long time since the last gameplay presentation of Scorn, but apparently we'll have to wait a long time before the work of Ebb Software is coming to the market. The developers have announced that their horror game inspired by the works of H.R. Giger (the creator of the iconic alien) will not be released on PC and Xbox Series X/S this year.
The news was delivered by Scorn's newly-established publisher - Kepler Interactive. On the company's official website there was an announcement regarding the formation of a new entity by seven developers, including the team at Ebb Software. It was mentioned in this text that Scorn's release will take place only in 2022.
Unfortunately, no justification for the decision was given. There are just over three months left until the end of 2021, and yet for a long time we have not received any new information about Scorn. So we can guess that either the devs need more time to refine the game, or there are some financial issues in the background. In the case of the latter, the funding granted to Kepler Interactive in the amount of $120 million (which, as reported by Reuters, comes from NetEase) would certainly help.
