Hytale Development Timeline

Posted on by amber
Another year without Hytale reaches its end, but at the very least, development continues as planned! So, today we explore the entirety of the Hytale development timeline from early beginnings to the latest updates from the devs. Hopefully, 2024 will mark the year this article has “Hytale’s Release” at its end!

What is Hytale?

Hytale Logo From the creators of one of Minecraft’s largest servers comes the highly anticipated Hytale! A sandbox RPG set to turn the gaming community upside down. As soon as it is released sometime in 2024 or 2025, the best Hytale server hosting will be found here at BisectHosting! (So keep us bookmarked until then ♥ )
