All versions will be pushed back a bit
Amplitude Studios is pushing back the date for its dungeon crawler. Previously set for May, Endless Dungeon will now be launching on October 19, 2023.
The roguelite action game was set to arrive in just about a month’s time, on May 18. However, it sounds like Amplitude Studios is going to need a little more time to work on its dungeons.
“We want to provide the best roguelite experience possible for our community, and we think there’s still more work for us to do to make sure we get there,” reads today’s announcement on social media. The PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One versions are now moved to this date, while the Switch version will have a release date announced later.

Building the dungeon
Over on the Amplitude forums, producer Antoine Serena shares some extra information on what the team will be working on. This includes polish and bug fixing, but also incorporating feedback from past OpenDev sessions. This includes tweaks to economy, balancing, variety, and onboarding.
Serena also shared a message from Amplitude general manager Romain de Waubert:
“We’re grateful and honoured that players are looking forward to playing Endless Dungeon. The feedback we’ve received across our OpenDev sessions so far has proved to us that we truly have something special on our hands and we want to ensure we have time for the game to reach its full potential.
Players have always been at the heart of our studio’s philosophy and releasing Endless Dungeon in October will allow us the extra time to keep working with the community and polishing the game for an amazing day one experience.”
Though it’s a notably lengthy delay, hopefully this gives Amplitude a bit more time to fine-tune Endless Dungeon. I’m a bit more familiar with Amplitude’s strategy titles, and was a big fan of Endless Legend in particular, but I’m curious to see how this tactical action roguelite turns out. A little extra time for the studio to breathe and polish can be a good thing.
Endless Dungeon now arrives for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on October 19.
