Back in July of this year it was announced that ADR1FT from Three One Zero would launch on the Xbox One on September 16th, following on the July 15th release of the game on PS4. The game had first launched on PC for desktops and VR headsets and was supposed to be made available for consoles shortly thereafter. Well, new reports are stating that the Xbox One version of ADR1FT is cancelled.
According to New Game Network, they reached out Three One Zero to find out what the status was of the sci-fi adventure game after it clearly missed its September release window. According to the site, CEO of Three One Zero, Adam Orth, responded with a brief message, telling them…
“ADR1FT will not be coming to Xbox One. I hope [fans] are able to find some way to experience and enjoy it on our other platforms.”
Orth was a former creative director at Microsoft, famously getting into an internet Twitter spat with gamers who found out through leaked specs that the Xbox One would have always-on DRM. When fans protested this move Orth told everyone to infamously “Deal with it.”
Orth was fired shortly thereafter.
After floating around a bit, the creative director eventually established Three One Zero and crafted a tale about an astronaut attempting to survive a catastrophic situation aboard a space station that sends large chunks of it sprawling through space. Players must attempt to piece together the events that led to the devastation and then try to make it out in one piece. The game was one of the first designed with VR in mind, and seemed to be poised to launch on the PS4 with PSVR support, but it didn’t seem to happen.
At this point it looks as if the game won’t even see the light of day on the Xbox One. The story was also picked up recently by PC Online News, a Chinese outlet, who also reported that the game was canceled on Xbox One.
You can currently pick up digital copies of ADR1FT for PC, PS4 and for VR devices such as the HTC Vive.
