An Update on Alekhine’s Gun’s Release Date

Hello Alekhine’s Gun fans,

Over the past week, many of you reached out to us on social media with questions about a supposed change for Alekhine’s Gun’s release date. This is totally understandable. Retailers updated their sites with different dates, many of which differed from our official launch date of February 9, 2016.

On one hand, it was incredibly encouraging to see how many of you have pre-ordered our game and can’t wait to play it for yourself. You are all awesome, and we love hearing from you. But on the other hand, it was difficult to read your questions and concerns (and believe me, I read them all) and not be able to give you an official answer. I apologize for that, and with Maximum Games’ first worldwide launch nearly complete, we’re learning a lot and using that experience to improve for next time.

Now, for the news you came here for!

We’re happy to announce that Alekhine’s Gun will be released on March 1, 2016 to North America, Latin America, and to Steam worldwide. In Europe, the physical and digital console versions are coming very shortly after. When a date is finalized, you’ll hear it from us on Facebook, Twitter, and right here on our official Alekhine’s Gun website.

Because of your positive feedback on our last video, we’re also releasing a brand new Alekhine’s Gun Let’s Play, in which producer Andrew Nguyen guides first-time player (and fellow Maximum Games employee!) Lauren Helling through a level of the game.

You can also watch the original Let’s Play, in which Andrew challenges himself to get the highest mission ranking in the shortest time possible.

Thank you for your support and understanding,
