[ The story of the game and the anime take place in the beta world line, where Okabe could not save his precious person, Kurisu, on July 28, and ended up returning alone. However, the trailer for the game notes that Okabe does not know that Kurisu is in fact still there.]
No platform for the game has been announced.
The original game inspired a television anime in 2011, as well as an original film serving as an epilogue to the TV series in 2013. Funimation Entertainment has licensed both the television series and film.
Steins;Gate -The Committee of Antimatter-, a novel taking place six years after the original visual novel, was scheduled for release in Japan in January. However, it was cancelled only weeks before the scheduled release.
Update: Name of Okabe fixed. Thanks, Videogamep.
