We Happy Few Delayed Until Summer 2018; New Playable Character Sally Unveiled

In this latest update, Compulsion has announced We Happy Few is now "content-complete", however the team wishes to polish its product further, resulting in a new projected release date of mid-2018. Currently, We Happy Few sports a hefty price tag of $50.99, a high price for an early access game. While anxious gamers were understandably disgruntled at the price increase, Compulsion Games explained it as a necessity due to the four-fold increase in the development team, as well as the game's scope and narrative. The game will have a total of three narratives, one following Arthur - who is now playable in the game; Sally, and a third character who is now unknown.

We Happy Few was revealed in 2015, and entered Steam Early Access in 2016 following a successful Kickstarter campaign. In this alternate England, conformity is key.

"There are these moments that are memorable, very amusing, and super weird and we're really excited to show you all", said Sam Abbott, Producer for We Happy Few in a press release. However, after "a thorough review of the game, beginning to end", the developer has made a decision to delay final release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, in order to improve its structure and flow - as discussed in the video update below. Therefore, the beginning of Arthur's story is receiving a bit of a facelift. You'll have to fight or blend in with the drug-addled inhabitants, most of whom don't take kindly to people who won't abide by their not-so-normal rules.

Now, Compulsion is offering a refund to anyone who bought the game on Steam regardless of how long they've played it. Given all the content we have yet to reveal to the public, we can see their point. A new release date was set for April 13, 2018, alongside a major price hike that doubled the original cost of the game from USD$30.00 to USD$60.00.

The studio acknowledged in the delay announcement that the reaction was fair, although it reiterated that "we've done a huge amount of work and the scope of the game is substantially increasing over what's there right now, which is a very unusual situation for Early Access games, especially as we have a retail release on the way".
