Scratch it off your Christmas list.

Syberia 3 was first announced in 2009. It was shelved, but brought to life once again in 2012 and we’ve been waiting for it ever since.

After talk of a 2014/ 2015 release date, we finally got confirmation of a December 1, 2016 release date back in May.

But temper your excitement, because in a surprise to no one, there’s been a delay.

“After the unprecedented excitement we have seen for this game…we decided to bring even more depth to Kate Walker’s new adventure,” said Vice President of Microids, Elliot Grassiano. “We are aware that fans around the world are eager to embody Kate Walker again but we need additional time to provide them with an adventure that can live up to their expectations in this fascinating universe created by Benoit Sokal.”

The delay will afford the studio time to add more cinematics, optional narrative sequences, and new voice-over languages according to Benoit Sokal, founder and creative director of the Syberia saga.

“I am obviously disappointed that Syberia 3 is delayed because we would like to release our games as soon as the storyline is written, but I’m also relieved that Microids has taken the decision to postpone the game’s launch because it is essential to offer players the best gaming experience possible,” said Sokal.

Syberia 3 will release some time in Q1 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
