Revita developer Benjamin Kiefer has announced that the 2.0 update for the game has been cancelled, and that further work on the game has been halted. This decision comes after nearly two years of development and after long discussions with the game’s publisher, Dear Villagers.
“This decision was of course very difficult to make. The team and I have poured a lot of time, effort, and personally quite a bit of money into it too, which we hope is visible from what we have shown so far, so trust me when I say this is the last thing I wanted to happen.”, said Kiefer.
According to Kiefer, the costs of porting, QA, and localization for the 2.0 update would have vastly outweighed any revenue gained from it, even if it were charged for. He also stated that while chances are really slim, if the opportunity to proceed with 2.0 presents itself, he will make it happen, but he reminded fans not to keep their hopes up.
In addition, Kiefer revealed that the team has been working on a new project for the past two months and that it looks to be very exciting. He did not provide any specifics about the new project, but he did say that it will appeal to fans of Revita.
The cancellation of the Revita 2.0 update is disappointing news for fans of the game, but it is understandable given the financial constraints. The team has shown a lot of dedication to Revita, and I am excited to see what they come up with for their new project.
