I combined the Nancy Drew threads. No need to have multiples for the same thing.

The preorder and release dates for Midnight in Salem were just changed on HeR Interactive's website.

It now says that the preorder date is October 15th and the release date is December 3rd.

Quote
Dear Nancy Drew Fans,

We wanted you to be the first to know that our game, Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem will now release on Tuesday, December 3rd and pre-orders will begin on Tuesday, October 15th.

During our internal and external testing of Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem, we received tremendous feedback on the game. But to fully evaluate these valuable fan insights and implement any changes, we have decided to delay the release of the new title by two weeks.

We value the trust our fans place in us and you are always our top priority. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding. In the meantime, please enjoy today’s teaser and further reveals this week.

Sincerely,

Penny Milliken, CEO


And here is the new teaser trailer for the game.

Hi Leeana and judith, I merged your posts with our existing Midnight in Salem thread.

Check out my link to the new teaser trailer which was released this morning.

The company is taking a lot of heat for this last-minute decision to delay the release date. I believe that surely they must have known before this morning that the game was going to be delayed and that they should have given people a heads up about this at least a week ago. The old HeR Interactive would not have handled things in this slapdash manner.

Having said that, I think they would be better off just stating that the game will release in Spring 2020, because the game would probably benefit further from that. Not sure what all you can fix in two weeks apart from typos and misspelled words, and hopefully there won't be any of those in the final product.

Thanks for the news. At least they didn't start taking the orders and then change the release date.

Is that supposed to be Nancy's voice in the trailer?? In that small portion, I didn't care for it at all.

The company just confirmed that the voice you hear in the beginning of the trailer is not the voice of the new Nancy but rather that of another character in the game.

I honestly don't see why they couldn't have started taking preorders while changing the release date. I think that would have been better for the folks who stayed up half the night waiting to preorder (and yes, quite a few people said that they had done exactly that).

Well, I think if I had pre-ordered expecting the game to release on a certain day and then they changed the release date, it would have ticked me off. Maybe just because it's this game that has been pushed back and back so much already. I don't know.

Even if it wasn't Nancy's voice, it just didn't seem to have the right tone or something.

You have a point there. It wouldn't have mattered to me, but I can see that it would have mattered to some people. And if they weren't made aware of the new release date, there would also be problems.

I notice there's no actual gameplay in that trailer.

I don't believe they have any idea when the game will be ready for release.
Or if it will ever be ready at all.

I've been reading forums and social media since this announcement of the delay early this morning. Many share your view, Jenny.

If their new preorder and release dates don't hold firm, their supporters will truly diminish in number.

And I really hope some actual gameplay is shown to us in the next couple of weeks.

Which may be why they decided not to take pre-orders yet is what I'm thinking Jenny.

And, Marian, maybe I wasn't being clear at first. If they announced the delay in release but you could still pre-order, at least you know that, which does make it different than the way I was thinking it.

Anyway, I have so many Nancy Drew games to catch up on before playing this one that it doesn't make a lot of difference to ME. I do understand though that other people are waiting and waiting.

They also say that they will be releasing a full game trailer soon, but who knows whether there will be any actual gameplay in it.

little jackalope post a new post.PRE-ORDERS FOR MID: OCT. 15TH
October 1st, 2019
Dear Detectives,

Pre-orders and the official release date for Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem has been pushed out, but, only by two weeks. Read our official letter here and re-mark your calendars for October 15th to pre-order and December 3rd to release date.

Nancy Drew Mystery Adventure Games Midnight in Salem Pre-order dates

Creating a new game on a new engine with a new user interface, a new inventory, new animations, new puzzles, new navigation and more, this delay makes the most sense from our standing. MID is looking terrific, but there are a lot of things to polish and perfect to ensure a great playing experience. We don’t want the game crashing, or broken logic leaving you wondering what to do, or characters to say something that you haven’t asked them about yet, and we want you to be able to finish the game without getting blocked from accomplishing the next task on your task list.

We do apologize for the extended wait, but I can honestly say this one is the one that is worth it.

Here are a few quick FAQs:

Pre-ordering will open at 11:00am PT on October 15th, 2019
There will be a PC digital download, Mac digital download, PC physical copy, and Mac physical copy to choose from
If you pre-order a digital copy, you may download your game on December 3rd, 2019
If you pre-order a physical copy, we will ship them out on December 3rd in the order that people placed the orders
There is no BONUS Edition for Midnight in Salem
Physical copies for this game will ONLY be available at herinteractive.com, it will not be in retail stores like Target, Best Buy, or Walmart
There is a limited run of 10,000 physical copies total, and once they are gone, no more will be made
All Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem games purchased at herinteractive.com will receive a free digital strategy guide
We will not need 4 years to build the new games after MID, it will be sooner. 😉
We will have a big prize pack – which can be won by a randomly selected winner from everyone who pre-orders – stay tuned for details!
We still have some 3D environments and more 3D characters to show off in the coming weeks! Also, please enjoy this bonus teaser trailer! (We will have a bigger, official trailer later!)

Note: the part with the line “I don’t know how to explain it, but I saw something,” is the new voice of Nancy, which was the same voice actress at the end of Sea of Darkness where it teases MID “Join me in my next adventure.”

Thanks for the info, family.

It goes without saying (but I will say it anyway) that the reasons they give for the game having been delayed are things that should have been taken care of weeks ago.

I knew that there would be no Bonus edition, so that comes as no surprise. What I really don't like is the fact that people who preorder a physical copy will apparently be getting the game later than those who order the download. In the past, the preordered physical copies were shipped out about ten days before the release date and just about anyone who had preordered got the game early. This makes me consider only getting the digital download. If I knew that I could download it and burn it to a physical CD, I might consider doing that, but I don't know if that would be possible.
