Severed delayed for 'a few additional months'

The makers of Guacamelee aren't ready to slice up their next game just yet, as DrinkBox Studios has issued a delay for the upcoming Vita-exclusive, Severed.

Shacknews first had the chance to try out DrinkBox Studios' upcoming slasher, Severed, during December's PlayStation Experience event. Those that have followed the game's development may have noticed that the Guacamelee creators are on the verge of missing their targeted spring/summer window and, in fact, there has been no word on Severed's progress over the past six months. Today, the studio has offered an update, noting that the game is indeed being delayed.

"Severed is a really different game from anything we’ve made before and we want to take a few additional months for playtesting and tuning so that we can make it the best game it can be," reads a DrinkBox statement sent to Shacknews. The statement also jokes that the developers are aiming to add "more memes and dumb jokes." Jokes aside, Shacknews would certainly be disappointed by any lack of poultry presence. In the meantime, DrinkBox has uploaded some new screenshots.

DrinkBox has not issued a new release window, but with months of testing lined up, it will most likely slice into 2016. Severed is coming exclusively to PlayStation Vita.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
