Reddit claims to have Return to Monkey Island’s release date 13 Aug, 2022 / 4 comments

Look, this is beyond a longshot, but Reddit claims to have it, Return to Monkey Island’s release date: September 1st.

Take this with a BIG PINCH OF SALT: in Devolver Digital official website, the code of the page for Return to Monkey Island contains a block of structured data with information on the game.

There are two date "keys":

"date_override" : "Coming 2022" (which is what appears in the page to users)

"date" : "2022-09-01T12:00:00.000Z"

The Redditor goes on to speculate that it’s a placeholder, which... is likely.

Mojo, meanwhile, generally leans toward the more plausible Talk Like a Pirate Day: September 19th.

Update! A quick scan of a couple of Devolver's other upcoming games suggests they default to the first of the (presumed) release month. E.g. Skate Story has April 1st, 2023 set as "date" and "date_override" to "Coming 2023." Reigns: Three Kingdoms' "date" is December 1st, 2022 and "date_override" is "Coming 2022."

    Probably just the developer having to insert SOMETHING. I've certainly been there myself many times.

    September it is, then. If it doesn't release within that month I'm holding you guys responsible.



    Deal.

    ... still something seriously wrong in that logic, especially with Reigns: Three Kingdoms. Devolver doesn't usually release games in December.
