Supergiant Games announces May release for semi-exclusive PS4 game Transistor


In a blog post this morning, Greg Kasavin of Supergiant Games announced a simultaneous release date of May 20 for the studio’s sophomore title, Transistor:

Mark your calendar for May 20, 2014. In just a few weeks, our next game will be available for the PlayStation 4 and PC!

We?ve been putting the finishing touches on it and think it?s just about ready.

This week at PAX East in Boston, several of us from Supergiant will be taking a short break from development to show you some of our latest progress. We?ll have a near-final build of the game running on the PlayStation 4, which you?ll be able to get your hands on at our booth 892. It was one year ago at PAX East that we showed Transistor for the first time!

As noted above, the game is currently playable at PAX East, taking place this weekend from April 11-13. Consider this a PSA if you’re on the show floor, it’s probably the only demo you’ll get.

Transistor looks to be priced at $19.99 (?18.99 / ?14.99 in Europe.), although not yet available for pre-order.  Whether this has anything to do with Supergiant self-publishing, rather than partnering with WB Games is unknown, but they’re working on something for impatient fans.
