After years of anticipation, the HuniePop 2 release date has finally been revealed. You'll soon be able to enjoy HuniePop 2: Double Date for PC and Mac from your choice of six different digital retailers!
HuniePop 2: Double Date is the hotly-anticipated sequel to 2015's HuniePop. Both games feature an innovative mix of match-3 and dating sim gameplay — after conversing with a girl, you'll go on a date represented by a puzzle game featuring colored titles and special items. Another big part of its appeal is the explicit romance scenes featuring the girls.

Aside from a bunch of new girls (and a few returning favorites), the next entry in the HuniePop franchise also brings some new features. You can explore "double dates" by engaging in activities with two of the game's girls at the same time on the brand-new island of Inna Da Poona.
It's been some time since HuniePop was first released. Fans were eager for a sequel, but the game's developer had other designs. He first launched the spin-off Huniecam Studio, a parody game that featured a notable change in art style and a lack of any explicit lewd content. That was followed by 2018's The Spiral Scouts, an irreverent puzzle game created by the developer's newest company Cantaloupe Kids.
HuniePop 2 was first announced all the way back in late 2017. Unfortunately, it faced its fair share of development trouble — its creator Ryan "HuniePotDev" Koons had developed an unspecified "serious health condition" that delayed the game much longer than expected.
The game also faced some censorship troubles on Steam back in 2019. Notably, the first game in the franchise was one of several adult titles on Steam that was running the risk of being removed from the platform; Valve soon clarified its stance on adult-oriented games, and the company's willingness to publish adult games was solidified with a new Steam Labs experiment.
When is the HuniePop 2 Release Date?
The HuniePop 2 release date is locked in for February 8, 2021, according to a somewhat NSFW tweet from the game's developer. A price has still not yet been announced.
You'll be able to play this upcoming game on PC and Mac via Steam, the Humble Store, GOG, MangaGamer, Nutaku, and Fakku. For now, you can add HuniePop 2: Double Date to your wishlist on Steam.
