Atlas Fallen has been delayed to August. The open-world RPG was originally set to launch on 16 May but will no longer make its initial launch date. Instead, Atlas Fallen will launch on 10 August for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Deck13, the developers behind Atlas Fallen says the delay is needed to deliver the best possible version of the game. The recent media hands-on sessions and the PAX East expo all came with positive feedback but the team believe they need more time to get the game ready for the public.

The studio says they will provide players with some new exciting game updates in the coming weeks ahead of the game’s launch. They will also showcase some of the drop-in and drop-out co-op gameplay. The full statement reads:
Dear players, Thank you for the tremendous support we received so far on Atlas Fallen! From your enthusiastic comments on our video teasers online and in person at PAX East to the positive previews from critics, we’re grateful and honoured to have you excited to play our game. Our goal has always been to create a memorable action RPG experience in a unique setting, with exciting gameplay and the option for fully playable seamless co-op with a friend. We’d love to give the game some extra time which will allow us to deliver the best possible version of Atlas Fallen. To achieve this, we have made the difficult decision to delay the worldwide launch of Atlas Fallen to August 10, 2023. We apologize for this disappointing news. bWe’ll come back in early summer to share updates on the game, including new gameplay footage and your first look at drop-in co-op gameplay. We can’t wait to bring you a fantastic experience in the deserted lands of Atlas this summer! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we head to the finish line. —Deck13 Interactive and Focus Entertainment
I recently went hands-on with Atlas Fallen and spent about four hours with the game. It provides some excellent open-world gameplay and an exciting combat system to dive into. You can read my full hands-on here and watch it below:
