Initially with a placeholder release date of October 2021, Reverse Collapse: Code Name Bakery has been officially delayed to 2022. The announcement comes with an update from Sunborn Network through their Steam store page, detailing their development progress so far:
First off, we want to thank you for all your support for Reverse Collapse: Code Name Bakery.
The very first trailer for Reverse Collapse was released over two years ago in 2019, and we have not stopped working on this project since. This is a remaster of our first game, Code Name: Bakery Girl (2013), so it represents something special and meaningful to us. This is also an opportunity for us to make up for our shortcomings as an amateur game developer in our earlier years, so our team really went all-in to infuse the script with elaborate storylines, graphics, characters, levels, and mechanics. We hope that the final product will be presented as an exciting new experience that captures the essence of Code Name: Bakery Girl.
Beyond the visual update and code optimization, we came up with a lot of new and interesting ideas in the development process for Reverse Collapse, some of which have already debuted during live streams and offline demos, while other core content is still undergoing QA and optimization. Therefore, we have decided to move the release to 2022 so that the team can continue to work on the new content until the entire game is complete and polished.
To wit, the cliffnotes includes:
- Content and structure adjustments
- Level diversification
- Improving the lore
It’s a shame that Reverse Collapse: Code Name Bakery has been delayed, but hopefully the other spinoffs within the Girls Frontline universe will be able to go global sooner than later too. Project Neural Cloud will be launching in China soon, for instance.
