Amplitude Studios and SEGA have announced that the historical strategy game Humankind will be delayed until August 17, 2021. The move to include additional time for development will allow for better game features including accessibility, onboarding, balance, pacing, diplomacy, and AI. Many of the planned changes are as a direct result of player feedback during a variety of testing opportunities.
This will give us time to further polish the game for a great day one experience, address the feedback from the OpenDev scenarios, and keep working with our community to improve the game. We want to thank you all for your passion for our dream, the feedback you have given, and the support for this decision many of you have already expressed.
To thank the community for its support, developers have revealed that the Lucy and Edgar Allen Poe Avatar Sets will be included for everyone who preorders the game. The inclusion of these new Avatars allows players to customize their leaders and these two will be available on the game’s launch.
