In case you were wondering, yes, long-in-development PC VR shooter Blunt Force is still in the works, over four years after its reveal.
Developer Monad Rock took to Twitter today for the first time in nearly a year, confirming that the game is still in the works. Blunt Force is a WWII-era VR shooter that was initially announced all the way back in December 2016. After years of silence, we’d begun to think the game was canceled until it resurfaced with a surprise demo during June’s Steam Game Festival in 2020.
👋 Long time, no see 🙂
Monad Rock is constantly working on Blunt Force and we are back with some news! Recently our code team upgraded our Unreal Engine to the 4.26 version. Now we will roll with development!

But, following that demo, the game again fell off of the radar. Today’s tweet reassures that the developer is “constantly working” on the game, and it was recently upgraded to Unreal Engine 4.26. How’s that for granular information?
Sadly there’s still no word on when the game might get a full release, nor if it might come to other platforms beyond PC. But we remain hopeful; last summer’s demo showcased decent visuals but some clunky gameplay, but the studio warned the demo was outdated. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the game not only comes out but is actually worth playing once it’s here.
