Techland Puts Development of Hellraid on Hold

Techland, the developer known for Dead Island and most recently Dying Light, has put their current game in development Hellraid on hold. Today in a post on the official game page for Hellraid, the developer stated that, “We would like to officially announce that our dark fantasy FPP game Hellraid will not be released this year as previously planned, and the development of the game has been put on hold.” They also go on to explain that they will use the resources that are currently going into Hellraid and direct them to their other franchise Dying Light.

The game itself had the player become a demon slayer and go about in a world that was invaded by hell to slay all kinds of different monsters. The game also boasted of having 2-4 player co-op, a vast class-free skill tree, and an incredibly complex combat system. It was set to be a first person perspective game with melee combat but also was going to include crossbows and magic for anyone who wanted to be at a distance from the enemy.

Just looking at the game from the pictures and videos they already had up and it sort of feels like a Skyrim type of game but with co-op and a few other stuff. I don’t know if the game actually would have played like Skyrim, but it still is a bummer that the game has been put on hold. The game was set to release in 2015 on Windows, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
