New-Zealand based developer Aurora44 (now A44 Games) in collaboration with Annapurna Interactive revealed a realistic action RPG, Ashen, as an Xbox console exclusive at E3 2015. The game originally scheduled to release in 2018, might have been delayed.
A44’s Twitter bio was recently changed without making any noise. Originally, it was,

Replying to a user who asked for the release date, A44 Games wrote, “Unfortunately all we can say for now is 2018! Not many months left in the year”.
“You can find out more about Ashen in this trailer and we do not have a specific release date yet, but Ashen will be releasing in 2018 on Xbox One, PC and it will be on Xbox Game Pass at launch”, A44 Games wrote in another tweet.
Presumably, the development hasn’t reached the final stages and we’re possibly a few more months away from Ashen’s release. But here’s a catch. At X018, Microsoft said that they’ll be launching many new indie titles with “Winter of Arcade” and there will be a Winter of Arcade trailer at The Game Awards with a release date. December’s still waiting with the Christmas surprises. Let’s hope for the best.
We’ve reached out to A44 Games regarding the same and we’ll update the article with required updates if any.
