French developer DON'T NOD announced on social media that their forthcoming narrative adventure game, Lost Records: Bloom & Rage, has been pushed back from its intended release window. While no confirmed date has been revealed, the developer has cited that players can anticipate this game arriving on consoles and PCs in early 2025.

The narrative adventure game was first announced during the Game Awards in December 2023 alongside its Teaser Trailer, platforms, and a late 2024 release window. In the months that followed, the developer had yet to confirm a release date as it would be delayed, and the reason why is quite nostalgic.

According to a post posted to their official Twitter account, the developer revealed the reason behind the delay for the narrative adventure game was so that players could have plenty of room to enjoy Lost Records: Bloom & Rage and the upcoming Life Is Strange game, Double Exposure. The latter, scheduled for release on 15th October 2024, would cause some dilemma for fans of both games on deciding which to play for which DON'T NOD opted to push back Lost Records: Bloom & Rage so that players have time to enjoy playing both games.

DON'T NOD, who originally developed the first two Life Is Strange games and its spin-off title, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, before it became a public company, subsequently began self-publishing titles as of 2020. This saw the studio move away from the Life Is Strange series, in which Sqaue Enix handed the keys to the kingdom to Deck Nine Games, which DON'T NOD went on to develop Vampyr and the critically acclaimed game Tell Me Why with Xbox Game Studios.

During this period, the developer began work on Jusant and Lost Records: Bloom & Rage while publishing titles, the latter of which has been described as the developer's return to the roots of what brought them critical and commercial success. Lost Records: Bloom & Rage, developed by some team members who worked on Life Is Strange in 2014, aims to start a new narrative universe in a "story-driven journey through time" for DON'T NOD.
