Time for a progress report on Trine 2... and a new trailer. Finnish developer Frozenbyte announced today that the game's artists seem to be done with their work on the game, and they're celebrating this acheivement with a new video highlighting the gorgeous environments in Trine 2.
That doesn't mean the game is actually finished, however. Neither Frozenbyte nor publisher ATLUS can confirm a release date yet, though both have stated Trine 2 will be out before 2011 ends.
Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyvärinen explained that while the team is excited over their progress, they still have plenty of work to do.
"There is still a lot of work to do – our programmers are working hard to ensure that the game ships bug-free and that all of the gameplay features match the quality level we want. The game will be released once we have completed our work and the game has passed all the console-related quality assurance processes, so we are still a few months away. Ultimately we decided that we don't want to rush things – our goal is to make Trine 2 one of the best if not the best downloadable game of 2011 and we'll stick to that."
So for now, rest assured the game will be released "later in 2011" and simultaneously on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PSN, and Steam for PC. Another version is being planned for Linux and "other platforms", due out some time after.
