Evil West release date pushed back from September to November 2022

The developers need a little extra time to ensure the game lives up to its full potential.


Evil West, an upcoming third-person action game with a spooky western theme from Polish developers Flying Wild Hog and publisher Focus Entertainment, has had its release date pushed back. Originally, the game was set to release on September 20 of this year, but is now aiming for a November 22, 2022 release date instead.

The delay isn’t too bad considering it’s only a few months as opposed to being pushed to next year, and the reasons provided make sense in terms of why the developers would need some additional time. On social media, a statement was shared regarding the delay of Evil West that touches on things like the desire to release the game on five platforms, “including multiple generations of consoles.”

Overall, it sounds like the developers are working to ensure the game is at the same quality level across all platforms, both next-gen and previous gen. In the past, we had hands-on time with the demo at PAX West and noted its uniqueness, challenging boss battles, and interesting environmental puzzles.
