State of the Game - Jan 18'th 2019

The second post in a series of updates that will (hopefully) help inform the players of the current state of the game, as well as point to some helpful resources.

PC and Switch Release Date

Where is Killer Queen Black?

We pushed our release date from Winter 2019 (Q1 2019) to Summer 2019 (Q2/Q3 2019).

We want this game out as much (or more) as you do, but we're committed to only releasing it when it's ready with all the features that enable the best experience. Please checkout out our Trello Board for a list of what we're still working on!

In addition to the new features that we're working on, we need more time for marketing, media review campaigns, influencer campaigns, and console testing. These things take time, and most can only be completed once we have a release candidate that has the full feature set.


Beta One has been completed. Beta Two will be announced soon! We are working on new and exciting features and look forward to sharing them with you when we launch Beta Two. Our goal is to get as many of you in the Beta as we can!

Players that have already signed up for the Beta will NOT need to sign-up again for Beta Two. For those that have not signed up and wish to participate, please visit to sign-up.

We really appreciate the feedback and support (and patience) that we have seen from our Beta testers, from spotting bugs to suggesting features it has been an incredible experience for us and we want to say thank you!

Why do you Beta on PC and not Switch?

Running the Beta on PC allows us to rapidly iterate and not wait for the certification process consoles require before releasing a new build to players. We listen to our play testers, and we often make daily changes based off their feedback.

Is it really a Beta if it not feature complete?

I suppose that depends on your definition of Beta. Our goal is to get feedback from a wide variety of players as soon as possible so that we can focus on continual improvement of existing features and mechanics as we continue to build out new ones.

When is Beta Two?

Beta Two will be announced in the next several weeks! Stay tuned for a larger announcement when it's online!
