Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened gets new April 2023 release date

After previously being delayed due to the war in Ukraine, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is now set to release later this April.


Back in February, Frogwares announced that Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened was delayed due to “continual interruptions” including missile attacks as the studio is based in Ukraine which is currently embattled in a war against invading Russian forces. An updated release date wasn’t shared at the time, but today it was revealed that Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is now set to release in April 2023.

More specifically, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will be released on April 11 for platforms including Xbox One, Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. In addition to a new release date trailer, it was noted that pre-orders are open now for all platforms except Switch, with Switch pre-orders launching at a later date. Anyone who pre-orders the game will get The Sleuth’s Attire Cosmetic Set for free.
