Frozen Synapse 2 is Finally Coming in August After 2 Years In The Making

Remember Frozen Synapse? It was an indie darling on PC inspired by X-Com Apocalypse, that released way back when thanks to the efforts of Mode 7. The developer of well-received indie strategy game has today announced the game's sequel will be launched in August.

Frozen Synapse 2 was originally due for release in 2016, but for reasons unknown, these plans had to be put on ice. Developer Mode 7 recently came under fire from the game's Steam community, who had been demanding an update on the game's release date. In response, Mode 7 has now promised the game will be released sometime in August, but it cannot yet confirm an exact date. According to its press release, "the game is currently undergoing final bug and balance testing, as well as a last beta round for gameplay purposes".

Mode 7 accompanied the press release with a statement:

Frozen Synapse 2 is the culmination of everything we’ve done since we started Mode 7. It’s got a proven tactical core with a big, systemic strategic overworld and I hope this gameplay video presents an honest, full depiction of the scope we’ve managed to achieve. We’re being very open about the nature of the game because we truly believe there’s enough in there for the content to stand on its own. If people don’t like this we’re probably going to quit and start an alpaca farm instead.

We’re desperate to get anyone who enjoyed the first game to check it out, as well as anyone who is interested in large-scale strategy games – it’s incredibly hard for any indie game to reach an audience these days, so wishlisting it on Steam would make a big difference to us. We have big plans to continue working on the game after launch, so we really hope it gains the traction we need to do that.”

With the announcement of the apparently imminent release date of what Mode 7 is calling the “culmination of everything [they’ve] done” since they first began the studio, they’ve also released a gameplay preview video, which is just below for you to check out. Have you played the original game? Are you looking forward to the sequel?
