Abandoned: PS5 app does not work, Blue Box updates us on the situation


Last night - August 10, 2021 - there should have been the presentation of Abandoned, the new exclusive PlayStation horror game from BLUE BOX Game Studios, a team that has made a lot of talk in the last period. This presentation was supposed to take place via a PS5 app, but something went wrong and the app didn't work. The team then immediately started working on the problem, but still nothing has been solved.

Now, however, BLUE BOX Game Studios has published a new tweet through which it states: "The delay is taking longer than we expected. We are working at full capacity on this. Thank you for your patience and apologize for the situation. "

A statement of this type certainly does not bode well for a rapid resolution of the problem. BLUE BOX Game Studios has not indicated a possible time (or even date) for the publication of the corrective update for the Abandoned PS5 app.

The players obviously did not take it well, as this announcement was already expected for the month of June and was postponed to August with the aim of improving the game and not disregarding the expectations of the fans. BLUE BOX Game Studios also found itself embroiled in a conspiracy theory according to which Hideo Kojima is behind all this. Multiple sources have claimed that this is not the case, but nonetheless there are fans who claim that the name of the game was suggested by Metal Gear Solid 5, even.

Regardless, Abandoned continues not to be shown and even those interested in the project may start to lose curiosity: certainly BLUE BOX Game Studios is not handling the situation in the best way.

Abandoned PS5 Demo Delayed by Technical Issues

Update 08/11/2021: Blue Box says it's continuing to work on enabling the patch that will activate the Abandoned Realtime Experience app, almost a full day after it was meant to launch.

In an update on Twitter, the studio said the fix was taking 'longer than expected', and that the team is 'fully working' on it. No further reasoning has been given for the delay.

After announcing yesterday that a 'Realtime Experience' patch would be available universally starting at 12pm PT / 3pm ET time today, Blue Box Game Studios announced that a demo for its upcoming project Abandonded has been delayed due to technical issues.

The Realtime Experience demo is available to download right now on the PlayStation Store. Launching the app loads the game up to where it prompts you to select a language, before displaying a message that notes that it is not a playable teaser but an introduction of what to expect. Yet, launching the demo now, you will be met with a 'Check back soon...' message over a black background.

The delay of the Realtime Experience comes at an awkward time for Blue Box Game Studios, which previously postponed the reveal in late June. Abandoned has also been the subject of numerous rumors, most notably that the game is tied to Hideo Kojima and/or a new entry in Konami's dormant franchise, Silent Hill.

Blue Box has denied rumors, stating that it has no relations with Konami or Hideo Kojima. Abandoned's director, Hasan Kahraman, made a video on the studios' Twitter account confirming he is not Kojima in disguise.
