Risk of Rain 2 leaving early access in August

Developer Hopoo Games’ enormously well-received rogue-like co-op shooter sequel, Risk of Rain 2, will be leaving Steam early access and launching in its Version 1.0 guise this August.

Risk of Rain 2 entered Steam early access in March last year (it has found its way onto Xbox One, PS4, and Switch since then), and was initially expected to hit Version 1.0 this spring. However, as it explains in a new blog post, Hopoo made the decision to revise that release window after it sent out a tweet asking the community what it hoped to see addressed in 1.0 and discovered “quite a few areas of improvement we could work on”.

Hopoo says moving Version 1.0’s launch from spring to August – the first deviation from its roadmap since early access began – will enable it to “make sure RoR2 1.0 [is] truly a complete game experience, and that means not only completing and fleshing out content, but improving and iterating on old features and content that’s been left behind.”
