Unsung Story delay: staff leave, dev seeks outside help

No release window for Yasumi Matsuno's delayed tactical RPG.


Tactical RPG Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians is experiencing more development problems as staff leave and developer Playdek seeks outside help from other studios.

There's currently no release date for the Kickstarter-funded project.

Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians was first revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2013 from Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story creator Yasumi Matsuno.

It's releasing on PC after a Kickstarter campaign failed to raise enough for a PS4, 3DS and Vita version of the game.

"After we posted our latest development progress, we unfortunately lost a few key staff members that were part of Unsung Story development, and that has had an impact on any progress since then, as well as our product focus," said Playdek in its latest update.

"We now have one internal team capable of working on a single project, and for the financial strength of the company we need to focus on a few products in the near term that have the ability to get to a retail release before Unsung Story is able to. While this is a difficult choice to make, it is one we need to do for the ongoing financial health of the company.

"For Unsung Story, we will explore options for outside development help, and will look to see if we are able to bring on an outside team that can assist us in furthering development."
