Now Playing: Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter - Story Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter was delayed to summer 2016 a week before its June 10 release. However, it seems to have ignored the delay and launched on Steam anyway--it came out on all three platforms today in Europe.

The delay was announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the game's story trailer last week and was reinforced with a press release sent today. We've contacted publisher Bigben Interactive and have asked for comment on why it has released on PC and not consoles.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter was delayed to June 10 in April. Its original release date was May 27.

The new Sherlock Holmes game features a semi-open world with areas that players can explore freely; however, if they want to move to an entirely different area, they'll have to hit a loading screen. It also has tailing sequences similar to Assassin's Creed.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter received a score of 6 in GameSpot's review, which said, "It's a fantastic detective game; it's just a shame that it's bogged down by myriad technical issues, and a mediocre attempt to inject some action into proceedings."
