What is the King’s Quest 2015: Epilogue release date? By December 2016 according to Sierra! The official description for the Epilogue AKA “King’s Quest 2015: Chapter 6” confirms it’s coming this year, since it reads: “Coming 2016. Enjoy this bonus King’s Quest Playable Epilogue! Only available through The Complete Collection purchase.” The developers at The Odd Gentlemen keep each episode in development until it’s great enough for even the biggest of King’s Quest fans; While a shorter 1-month-wait sounds nice — like the time between Chapters 4 & 5 — we think you can expect Epilogue to arrive
sometime in November 2016 at the earliest and December 27th, 2016 at the latest on December 20th, 2016.

Epilogue Release Info:
Interview quotes: If the chapter releases are similar to how other episodic adventure games have a spread-out release, it could mean the remaining chapter (remember that the Epilogue has been referred to as Chapter 6 in the series’ marketing materials) will arrive over the next 2 months. But we won’t know for sure until the developer The Odd Gentlemen details it… which hopefully happens before the end of December 2016. More on that below…
The only solid release date information we have on the series is directly from the source. In a GamereactorTV interview from GDC 2016 (Game Developers Conference 2016) in mid-April, one of the series’ creators, Matt Korba, President and Creative Director of developer The Odd Gentlemen said:
“It’ll come out in a reasonable amount of time. Yeah [hopefully around the same timespan as previous episodes], it’ll be reasonable.” -Creative Director Matt Korba
“Uhm, we haven’t announced [the release timeframe] yet. I mean, we sort of, we’ve had them all planned out from the start. We’re a small team and we’re working on a pretty big game. So every time we finish one [chapter] we roll out people and start the next one. We don’t have an A and B Team, we’re not a machine for cranking out episodic games. The fans have been very supportive of that, because they’d rather have something that’s good then something that’s rushed.”
He continued: “So we haven’t announced when the next one is coming out yet, but again, you’re not gonna have to wait a year or a year and a half or anything like that. It’ll come out in a reasonable amount of time. Yeah [hopefully around the same timespan as previous episodes], it’ll be reasonable.”
Official quotes: “*Subsequent chapters and epilogue may be downloaded in-game as available upon individual release throughout 2016.”
The King’s Quest Steam page also mentions how the upcoming chapters will be made available.
The description reads: “Future chapters can be downloaded from in-game upon individual release throughout 2016.” As seen in the Main Menu screencap at the top of this page.
Note: The official King’s Quest website lists Epilogue as “Coming Soon!”, but that doesn’t mean anything since that site hasn’t been updated in almost a year. 😮
Epilogue Story Details:
Synopsis: Unconfirmed as of yet, but as you can see in our “King’s Quest 2015: Chapter 5 Walkthrough“, the Chapter 5 ending suggests Queen Gwendolyn will continue telling King Graham and her own stories from here on out. Whereas Manny AKA Manannan has been vanished and his brother Mordock has returned to the side of good.
General “Season 1” Info: Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, an independent studio with a talent for crafting fantastical tales, characters and worlds, the new King’s Quest rekindles the classic charm and curiosity that has captivated fans of this family-friendly series for over 30 years. As an aging King Graham looks back on a life of heroic adventure with his precocious granddaughter, Gwendolyn, players will be able to experience first-hand the unforgettable puzzles, places and personalities of his greatest untold stories. The first passage in a five-chapter journey, King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember unfolds on Graham’s early days as a bright-eyed teen in Daventry, competing in a contest of wit and valour for a knighthood in King Edward’s royal court.
Players can purchase King’s Quest: The Complete Collection (AKA “King’s Quest Series One: Adventures of Graham”), which is a bundle containing all five chapters of the new King’s Quest along with an exclusive bonus playable story epilogue on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store and Steam. Alternately, those who buy King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember individually at launch can choose to purchase the King’s Quest Season Pass, securing their access to the remaining four chapters of the game once available, but not the bonus Epilogue.
Here’s an interview with the creators about the new King’s Quest:
