Sabotage Studio has announced that it would be delaying Sea of Stars from its original 2022 release window to sometime in 2023.
“As we are closing in on a very big milestone the road to launch become clearer, and we find ourselves here with a large body of text and our logos at the bottom,” Sabotage says in a statement. “Keeping in mind our two main priorities—quality of life for our team and quality of the finished game—we can now confirm that Sea of Tars will be released in 2023.”
“We understand waiting is a big ask, and want to sincerely thank you community for the overwhelming support and positive vibes,” continues Sabotage. “In the meantime, we are looking at options to get a playable slice out to everyone this year.”

Sea of Stars is a prequel to Sabotage’s previous game, 2018’s The Messenger. However, Sea of Stars occupies a completely different genre in that it is a turn-based RPG rather than a sidescrolling beat ‘em up like The Messenger was.
Sea of Stars was first announced in 2020 and was given a 2022 release window last December in a Nintendo Direct. However, players will now have to wait a bit longer for it to come out.
The game is confirmed to be launching on Nintendo Switch and PC. The official Sea of Stars Twitter account lists “and TBD” in its biography as well, so that indicates the game could be announced for other platforms later.
