Frogwares says that they are pushing back the release of Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One "indefinitely" on the Xbox due to the war in Ukraine.

Frogwares, based in Ukraine's capital city of Kyiv, released a statement on Twitter saying that the PlayStation 4 version of the game will still be released on April 28. However, the Xbox version has been "postponed indefinitely." The PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions of the game were released in November 2021.

The older generation of consoles, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, were still in development as the team worked on optimizing the game to run smoother on the lesser hardware.

Their full statement can be found below.


"A lot of invisible work was done, but also as visible as changes to the map of the city on the PS4 and Xbox One versions so that the game could run smoother. And as we were getting closer and closer to finalising those versions, war happened.

"To say that the war made an impact on us is probably the understatement of the decade. Keeping our personal and mental situation out of this, the war impacted us from a production point of view heavily. From where we stand now, with the resources and manpower we have, we can release the PS4 version of Chapter One on April 28th. However, we have to postpone the Xbox One version indefinitely."
