Major We Happy Few Joy update coming in August
We Happy Few has had a bit of a rough time getting its feet off the ground. Despite some issues, the creepy survival game and trucked on. However, with the release of countless new areas and fixes under their belts, Compulsion has decided to change directions.
In a Steam Community post, they wrote, “Originally we were planning to release two updates before the final release of the game: the Joy related update, and an update that would have contained the Parade District (a brand new biome). We have decided to push out only one major update between now and final release. This will be the Joy update, a bit later in the schedule (it will now come out around mid August), to make it bigger and better, and keep the Parade District for the final release.”
The reasoning for this is largely based on the story of the game, with it being “…complicated to maintain both a regular update schedule and lock down the story.”
With that being said, this one major update means that the game will more than likely come out of Early Access earlier. At least according to the post.
In the meantime, check out the trailer for the previous We Happy Few update below.
