There's some bad news for farming RPG fans: the My Time at Sandrock release date has been delayed a little longer than we might have hoped, pushing back the launch of this upcoming game by "a few months."
My Time at Sandrock is the upcoming follow-up to My Time at Portia, a Farming RPG that had its full launch in early 2019. It did pretty well on Steam and a Western-themed sequel was revealed late last year. Fans seemed open to another game in the series considering that it was wishlisted over 100,000 times in just a few short weeks.
Unfortunately, things don't always go to plan. Earlier this year, Pathea Games announced that the My Time at Sandrock release date had been indefinitely delayed while it sorted out unspecified "certification requirements."
"We are currently facing a hurdle, which is that Sandrock needs to get a local rating certification required for us to be able to publish the game online," read a Steam Community news post from Pathea Games at the time. "We had hoped for the license to have been issued before May, but it’s currently looking like it won’t make that date. This means that we will not be able to release Sandrock into Early Access until we have this certification."
May has come and gone and there hasn't been much in the way of updates other than a news post from mid-May 2021 that said Pathea Games was still waiting on certification. Subsequent news posts focused on the upcoming Steam Next Fest and the My Time at Sandrock Story Demo and the subject was not addressed again — that is, until today.
When is the My Time at Sandrock Release Date?
The My Time at Sandrock release date will be sometime in the next few months. The game will be launching on Steam Early Access. Unfortunately, that's about as specific as it gets for now.
"The game will arrive on Early Access in a few months," read a Steam Community news post that discussed the launch of the Steam Next Fest demo for the game.
