Blue Box Studios has released an FAQ in an effort to answer any remaining questions

Hopefully we are approaching the point where this can be put to bed properly. To leave developers Blue Box Game Studios announced Today that they released one FAQ on their website which answers many questions that still haunt players’ minds.

This FAQ answers a lot of questions directly, but it’s actually a lot of things we already knew, like how they talked about being able to only show the same clip we saw on Twitter in the Exit Realtime Experience App due to technical issues and a lack of time trying to just release “something”.

However, we do get another confirmation that the release window is 2022, although they make it clear multiple times that the game isn’t ready for the public, and we don’t even know the real name. A lot could change from now until launch, but it wouldn’t come as a surprise to find that it’s still delayed, either because of issues with the pandemic or for some other reason. You can check out the entire FAQ for yourself, here:
