When is the Hyenas release date? Hyenas is a brand new, inventive FPS from Creative Assembly, the team behind Alien Isolation, and a number of PC strategy games. Set in space, the game tasks you with hunting down merchandise and facing off against other players to be the last team surviving.

So far, we haven’t seen much of the game when it comes to public showcases. But, Creative Assembly is consistently holding private closed playtests. This has meant some information has come out and even gameplay has leaked! This article will chronicle all that information over time as we lead up to the Hyenas release date which might enter the list of the best competitive FPS games.

Hyenas release date speculation

The Hyenas release date is likely to be sometime in 2023 or early 2024 as the game is being extensively tested and played on PC. However, a firm window hasn’t been officially announced by Creative Assembly yet. 

Providing the game hasn’t been delayed, we should hear news on a date sometime this Summer, possibly at Summer Game Fest, as SEGA is confirmed to appear at the show Geoff Keighley is hosting. Creative Assembly still has a lot to show off for the game and public playtests will almost certainly happen before it comes out. The studio also has to announce platforms for the game beyond PC and “consoles”, which is rather vague.

Hyenas story

The story of Hyenas takes place after the earth has been ruined. The rich decide to colonize Mars and the rest of humanity is living their dreadful lives on an orbiting slum called The Taint. Trying to gain status, you can purchase priceless pop-culture artifacts salvaged from ruined Earth to be sold on a massive retail ship called the ‘Plundership’.

As a pack of robbers, the Hyenas are talented at stealing these items and aiming to hit the Mars elite where it hurts. Where it hurts is grabbing a bunch of old SEGA merchandise for franchises like Sonic The Hedgehog, Super Monkey Ball, Jet Set Radio, and more.

Hyenas gameplay

We haven’t yet seen much official gameplay of Hyenas, besides the original reveal in 2022. However, a large amount of gameplay has leaked online showing the Zero-G combat, online matches, and more. But, for now, you can see the gameplay from IGN.

Hopefully, we should get an official look at gameplay soon but that leaked gameplay from a playtest showed off the core structure of the game, being that five teams of three players go up against each other fighting in zero gravity and opening vaults across the map to find that loot.

While you wait for the Hyenas release date, Creative Assembly has shown off a lot on the game, this includes the fact that they have been working with Drag Queens on the Galaxia character in the game to help bring her to life. In addition, after our time with Hyenas at Gamescom 2022 we came away keen on the game but highlighted that it needs to focus on its key features, rather than crafting a familiar marketing plan for the shooter.
