Techland's Hellraid delayed to 2014

Techland's first-person hack-and-slash game, Hellraid, is being delayed from its original 2013 launch window to 2014, the developer announced today via the game's website.

Hellraid charges players with the task of fending off Hell's armies. It began as an internal weapon mod created by a developer at Techland for Dead Island before spinning off into a full-blown title. In addition to a single-player campaign, Hellraid will also feature cooperative multiplayer. According to the developer's post, releasing the game this year would result in too many compromises. Techland now plans to release the game "when it's done."

"The additional time will give us the chance to add new features and completely new game modes for single player and co-op that until now we haven't had time to finish," the post reads. "We also want to use this time to rethink a few things. Playtesting our game with fans and players who visited our office gave us a lot of fresh insight and new perspective on many aspects of the game."

Techland will continue to update the game's blog with development progress.

Hellraid was announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC in April. The game was revealed as Project Hell back in August 2012.
