Necropolis delayed on PC, coming to consoles this summer

Namco Bandai signs combat adventure for PS4 and Xbox One, while PC version pushed back

Harebrained Schemes announced today that its combat adventure Necropolis, which was due out on Windows PC next month, will be delayed until the summer. The game will also be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at that time.

Namco Bandai will publish the console versions of the game, in which players enter a randomly-generated maze of polygonal 3D rooms, armed with just one life. According to its developer, Necropolis is inspired by the combat of the Dark Souls series and the intensity of procedurally generated games like Spelunky.

"While we really hate to slip a release date, we know from experience that doing a console release right adds a significant amount of development work," said Harebrained president Mitch Gitelman. "So we believe this is absolutely the right decision."

Necropolis for Windows PC will launch with a cooperative multiplayer mode supporting up to four players. A trailer for the multiplayer mode was also released today (above). You can see a full video preview for the game on Polygon soon.
