WrestleQuest Pushed to Summer
Skybound Games and Mega Cat Studios announced that they are delaying the release of WrestleQuest. Previously planned to release in May 2023, the game will now launch for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch in summer 2023. A message from Mega Cat Studios can be read below.
WrestleQuest follows an aspiring rookie wrestler as pro wrestling and fantasy collide. The game features licenced wrestlers from the ’80s through to today including “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Booker T, Andre The Giant, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and more. Those looking to read more about WrestleQuest can check out Sarah McGarr’s and Jon Jansen’s short impressions from recent PAX events.
Friends, wrestlers, and cat aficionados, we come bearing updates!
We cannot wait for you all to finally jump in and explore all of WrestleQuest. After 4 years, a 200k+ original word count, many powerbombs to settle disputes, and countless gallons of baby oil, we’re down to the final stretch of development.
The wrestle-cats have been busy, performing multiple focus groups and gathering hours of playtesting feedback to get the game to style and profile. The added time has allowed us to go back to our wishlist and add in new and improved features like an entirely redone UI, accessibility options, a fully updated world map, enhanced visuals, more sweat, and a gorilla press quantity of game balancing. With 50+ hours of gameplay content, it is something we are incredibly proud of, and we are eager to share WrestleQuest with the world.
As we raced towards the May 2023 finish line to bring this giant of a game up to our standard across all platforms, we also secured a new partnership we are extremely excited about. Unfortunately, this development also resulted in certain issues outside of our control. As such, we wanted to get an update out to everyone that has continued to wave their foam fingers in anticipation.
After discussions with Skybound, we agreed we will be moving the launch of the game to this summer. We are expecting to announce the official shiny new confirmed date later this month. While we are disappointed that we couldn’t share the entirety of WrestleQuest with you sooner like we hoped, we firmly believe this is the right choice with respect to our players and the sweat, sweat, and more sweat we have poured into building the best game we have ever made. We can’t wait to get your hands on it!
Sweat and Love,
Mega Cat Studios
