Earlier today a few articles popped up mentioning an interview with Lost Soul Aside creator Yang Bing on a Chinese radio channel.
The interview mentioned a possible release window in 2020, but the developer took to Twitter to clarify that this is just a hope and should not be considered a release date announcement.
You can check out the clarification below.
If you’re unfamiliar with Lost Soul Aside, it was revealed back in 2016 as a solo project by Yang Bing himself, and it immediately drew attention from the industry due to its impressive visuals and animation.
The developer then went on to form Ultizero Games to continue the project under the umbrella of Sony’s China Hero Project.
Lost Soul Aside wasn’t showcased in the project’s ChinaJoy presentation this year as Ultizero Games opted to focus on development, with the mention that things are proceeding well.
Below you can read an official recap of the story of the development of Lost Soul Aside directly from the China Hero Project, in case this is the first time you hear about this.
“Yang Bing never knew that Lost Soul Aside can be one of the CHPJ selected titles when he put the very first demo onto YouTube, also he never knew the trailer he made can attract so many attentions amongst global users. Back in that time, his answer to those people was: it might take at least 1 decade to finish the title because he was doing this alone.
Now to users, they may not need to wait that long to purchase the copy of the game.
So Yangbing came back to China, founded his own company called Ultizero Games and started hiring people all over China to accelerate the process of development.
So now, Yangbing is not alone anymore. He already has a team which has more than 14 developers, also he has China Hero Project’s support. More and more people walk together during his journey, everything is becoming better than before…”
