Octodad “Pushed” Back to April on PS4
Developer Young Horses has revealed through twitter that Octodad: Dadliest Catch has a April release window. The team says the game never had “a definite release date” and specifically stated that this was not a delay. Elsewhere on twitter, Young Horses said “game development is much more touch and go than you might think. Things often aren’t final until rather close to their (release) dates”. “Basically all you need to know is this is our first ever console release and we want to do it right the first time”. Good games take time, and we’re happy to wait for Octodad on the PS4.
