Twelve Minutes was supposed to launch this year, but the game’s Steam page says it will be available in 2021.
Luis Antonio’s anticipated story-driven cult, Twelve Minutes, has been in development for over five years now, and despite targeting a 2020 release date, it seems the game will now be launched in 2021.
According to the official Steam page of Twelve Minutes, the game has been planned to launch in 2021. While we should wait until we hear the official news from the publisher itself, it wouldn’t be surprising if they push back the game to next year as many big titles of 2020 have already been delayed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Twelve Minutes is a narrative-driven top-down game that follows 12 minutes of a couple’s life that ends in a dramatic way. Playing as the husband, you live with your pregnant wife who then gets accused by a police officer for killing her own father years ago. The officer accidentally shots your wife in an attempt to arrest her, which leads to her death with an unborn child. All these events happen in 12 minutes and then everything rolls back to the beginning, allowing you to try out different ways and search for clues to find the mystery behind the accusation of your wife. You have to find a way to reach the best destiny for all the three characters that are involved in the situation.
James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe are the voice actors behind the main characters of the game. Twelve Minutes was first revealed in 2015, but the enhanced edition of the game, backed by Annapurna Interactive, re-announced at E3 2019 for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC.
While only over a month left until the end of 2020, we haven’t heard anything about the exact release date of the game, which could be an indirect confirmation from developers on the game’s delay until an unknown date in 2021.
