Rime hasn’t been cancelled, despite it being absent for a while now.
Rime, the open-world adventure game Sony showed back at gamescom 2013, is still happening. The game is in development at Deadlight developer Tequila Works, but because they’re a small team, they don’t have many updates to offer as it takes them time to do them.
At least that was Shuhei Yoshida’s answer to the “is Rime still in development” question on Twitter.
The last time Rime was shown was was also at gamescom the following year. Ever since then, we’ve not heard a beep.
Hopefully, PlayStation Experience brings us new footage.
