Hytale Won’t Release in 2023 as Developers Overhaul the Engine

Today Hytale developer Hypixel Studios published a development update with plenty of information about the current state of the upcoming fantasy-meets-Minecraft game.

Today Hytale developer Hypixel Studios published a development update with plenty of information about the current state of the upcoming fantasy-meets-Minecraft game.

First of all, the game’s engine is being overhauled in C++ as opposed as Java and C#, providing the following benefits.

  • It makes it easier for us to release Hytale across multiple platforms. This is one of the most common requests we receive, and we want to deliver on it without compromising on quality. We also wish to avoid a situation where our community finds themselves split up based on the platform they play on.
  • It provides performance benefits.
  • It will make it easier for us to patch and maintain the game in the future, and establishes a stronger foundation for the future development of Hytale.

When will Hytale Come out?

Unfortunately, this will impact the development timeline. While “redevelopment of the engine is proceeding quickly” and the developers are “hitting internal milestones,” this means that the game won’t be ready for 2023, which was previously identified as the best-case-scenario earliest possible release window.

The development team sympathizes with the fans who have been waiting for a long time, but they believe this course of action is best for the game in the long run.

We also learn that the team has grown a lot, and now it counts over 100 developers, with more joining every month.

As a bonus, we also get a new track from the game’s soundtrack, titled “Heroes of Orbis.”

While at the moment we don’t have a specific release window, the developers of Hytale are targeting “a wide range of platforms” including PC.
