WrestleQuest Drop Kicked to Summer 2023 Release

WrestleQuest intro to ring.

Sorry, wrestling fans, but the fever dream of a wrestling RPG will take a little bit longer. WrestleQuest is set to release this summer now instead of May. This makes a year since it was originally expected to release during Summer 2022.

Developer Mega Cat Studios plans to confirm a concrete release date later this month. The team is working hard on making the game great, boasting a 50-plus-hour campaign, but it still needs a little more time in the gym. Read their full statement on the delay below via Gematsu:

Friends, wrestlers, and cat aficionados, we come bearing updates!

We cannot wait for you all to finally jump in and explore all of WrestleQuest. After four years, a 200,000-plus original word count, many powerbombs to settle disputes, and countless gallons of baby oil, we’re down to the final stretch of development.

The wrestle-cats have been busy, performing multiple focus groups and gathering hours of playtesting feedback to get the game to style and profile. The added time has allowed us to go back to our wishlist and add in new and improved features like an entirely redone user interface, accessibility options, a fully updated world map, enhanced visuals, more sweat, and a gorilla press quantity of game balancing. With 50-plus hours of gameplay content, it is something we are incredibly proud of, and we are eager to share WrestleQuest with the world.

As we raced towards the May 2023 finish line to bring this giant of a game up to our standard across all platforms, we also secured a new partnership we are extremely excited about. Unfortunately, this development also resulted in certain issues outside of our control. As such, we wanted to get an update out to everyone that has continued to wave their foam fingers in anticipation.

After discussions with Skybound, we agreed we will be moving the launch of the game to this summer. We are expecting to announce the official shiny new confirmed date later this month. While we are disappointed that we couldn’t share the entirety of WrestleQuest with you sooner like we hoped, we firmly believe this is the right choice with respect to our players and the sweat, sweat, and more sweat we have poured into building the best game we have ever made. We can’t wait to get your hands on it!

Sweat and Love,
Mega Cat Studios

WrestleQuest is set to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. Stay tuned to RPGFan when we finally pin this game down!
