The developers from Cellar Door Games have taken to Twitter to announce that Rogue Legacy 2 Early Access launch date has been moved from July 23rd to August 18th.
Game development is a lot like football. It’s weird, unpredictable, and we don’t know the rules. And just like football, when you get the ball, sometimes you’ve just gotta run with it.
While stabilizing the game for launch, we’ve run into some minor setbacks, but more importantly, some features got so close to completion that we absolutely had to see them through. This means more content, more stability, and more bang for your buck come launch day.

Rogue Legacy 2 is a genealogical rogue-LITE. That means it has all the trappings of a typical rogue-like (randomized runs, changing characters, and more), but with persistent upgrades, and persistent dead heirs. In this game, your legacy defines you. Spend your parents’ inheritance and grow the family manor to give your children a better fighting chance. Each child is unique, with their own traits and abilities. Your daughter could be an archer. She could also be a Vegan. Rogue Legacy 2 also lets you play how you want to. Go hard and fast, and you can dive deeper into the depths of a randomly-generated world. Or take it slow and steady, and build your character up until you’re ready for greater challenges.
