Earthblade, The New Game From The Creators of Celeste and TowerFall, Has Been Delayed

Extremely OK Games, The team behind Celeste announced this “2D exploration” game in 2021 and introduced it with a trailer in December 2022 during The Game Awards, with an approximate release date for 2024 has been delayed.

Isn’t Coming Out In 2024

However, in a statement, studio director Maddy Thorson confirmed that they will not be able to meet that date, even though they had hoped to announce a more defined release around this time.

“First off, we have to face the music: this game isn’t coming out in 2024,” wrote Thorson. “We would have liked to have a firm release date announced by now, but that’s not in the cards yet. We know this will be disappointing to many of you, and we’re sorry. Maybe this was predictable, but it always sucks when the haters are right.”


The team has grown with the arrival of Kyle Pulver, an independent game designer (and Towerfall world champion, also directed by Thorson) who has worked on games like Depict1 and Offspring Fling. According to Maddy, their intention is for Extremely OK Games not to grow too much so they can iterate ideas quickly.

“Kyle quickly came to us with a big idea that scared everyone involved. But it was clear he wasn’t here to derail the project,” Thorson said. “He’s working with us to identify and find solutions to our vision and the issues preventing our game from realizing that vision. Plus, his fresh eyes inspired us all to look at things differently.”

Extremely OK Games hasn’t been idle, as they released the free spin-off Celeste 64 earlier this year to celebrate the game’s sixth anniversary.

Earthblade is in development only for PC.
