Evil West’s Release Date Sealed For November As Game Goes Gold

The game's release was originally set for September 2022 before being delayed to November.

There aren’t many game-related announcements that excite gamers more than when a game is announced to be going gold. “Going gold” is a gaming industry term that means the full master version of a game is complete. And is ready and set to hit the market.


  • Evil West, a vampire-hunting third-person shooter, is going gold, as announced by the game’s Focus Entertainment.
  • The game is a collaborative effort by Flying Wild Hog, a Poland-based developer, and Focus Entertainment, a French game developer and publisher.
  • The game announced in 2020, was originally scheduled to be released on 20 September 2022 but got delayed to November due to some issues.
  • Evil West will be released on 20 November 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X.

Today, Evil West, a third-person shooter vampire hunting game, was announced to be going gold by Focus Entertainment, the game’s France-based publisher.

Evil West is developed by a Warsaw-based Polish studio Flying Wild Hog, a subsidiary of Embracer Group since 2020. The studio is known for developing the famous FPS series Shadow Warrior. The announcement of Evil West going gold was made by the game’s publisher, Focus Entertainment, on their official Twitter account.

Evil West follows a vampire hunter, Jesse Rentier, equipped with conventional weapons as well as a glove capable of storing electrical energy.

The player has to defeat bosses and other powerful enemies while leveling up themselves, and other skills, along the way. Every fighting boss has a special set of attacks and uses a unique pattern that players can use to their advantage by learning them.

Evil West was announced in December 2020 during The Game Awards for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. The announcement took place two months after Flying Wild Hog and Focus Entertainment announced their cooperation deal.

The game’s development was estimated to be completed by August 2022 with the game releasing on 20th September.

But the developer felt the game still needed more time, and due to some other challenges along the way, they pushed the release date to November. Much to the dismay of their fans.

So the news of Evil West going gold pleased the fans, as it seals the release date of the game next month in November.
