Just like the launch of GTFO, the corporate plans to launch the sport at first to gamers by Steam early entry. Den of Wolves does not have a launch date but, however PC avid gamers can anticipate receiving it earlier than their console counterparts.

Followers of GTFO could also be disillusioned that their recreation’s content material updates are ending, however Viklund factors to 10 Chambers’ first recreation as crucial for constructing the corporate’s confidence round design. “It was very releasing to have the ability to have a challenge the place we may have that ‘fuck it—we’ll simply do it’ kind of perspective,” he says. This sort of confidence is a driving drive behind 10 Chambers’ determination to develop one thing recent for gamers reasonably than counting on a franchise idea that already exists.
