We Happy Few has expanded content but a later release.
In an update video from Compulsion Games’ Creative Director Guillaume Provost and Chief Operating Officer Sam Abbott, it was announced that the studio needs more time before releasing We Happy Few. Originally scheduled for an April 2018 date, they now estimate a release of summer 2018. It will be available on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Provost and Abbott report that game content is complete and they are now working on polish and the addition of two other playable characters. They are primarily focusing on the beginning of the game and how players get into the story.
“There are these moments that are memorable, very funny, and super weird and we’re really excited to show you all,” said Sam Abbott, Producer for We Happy Few. “But we felt that the first two hours of Arthur’s story just didn’t live up to those moments, meaning that the game didn’t start as well as it should. So we went back to the drawing board and made a couple of big decisions: we brought forward a number of story moments, to get into the action faster, and also rebuilt the whole first island for Arthur.”
The video update also includes game footage and a teaser for one of the new playable characters, Sally:
