Not long ago in Vandal we wondered what happened to The Last Night, a spectacular independent video game that dazzled at Xbox E3 2017 and since then we have hardly seen anything new, beyond the controversies over the tweets anti-feminists by Tim Soret, its lead author. Recently several rumors came to light assuring that Odd Tales, the study in charge of its development, will be present at the gala of The Game Awards 2021 during the early morning of December 10, but the Soret has denied that this will happen.
However, in the same statement in which the author has denied those rumors, he has also confirmed that The Last Night Not only is it still alive and developing, but we will also see it in 2022: “This is just a rumor. The Last Night will show next year, not before“Soret explains in an email in response to PC Gamer.
Yes, it will be shown next year does not mean that we will see it published in 2022; the author, in fact, wanted to make it very clear that they still have nothing to say about it: “In a time of crunch and over-mediatization I’m not trying to make any kind of announcement right now, especially given the pressure that would add to my small team. “What Soret wanted to confirm with his words is that 2022 be the year of the return of The Last Night after a long time in silence: “For the return of The Last Night in 2022 our mission is to surprise everyone by the strength and originality of our proposal, “he said in his email.
The Last Night has been in development since 2014, when it started as a game of game jam. His arrival on Xbox and PC was later announced for which Odd Tales had reached an agreement with Raw Fury, although the editor dissociated herself from the project after the controversy.
