    Bandai Namco has decided to postpone the release of psychological horror Get Even on the PlayStation 4 until 23rd June.

  • News Red Dead Redemption 2 Delayed Until Spring 2018

    New screenshots released

    As anticipated, Red Dead Redemption 2 is hanging up its hat and returning to the saloon until Spring 2018 on the PlayStation 4. The game – which was originally scheduled to release later this year – is continuing a Rockstar Games tradition of enduring at least one delay. Realistically, don’t expect to be playing this...

  • News Ace Combat 7 Returns to the Skies Until 2018 on PS4

    Fly away

    Anticipated arcade dogfighting sequel Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will be staying above cloud cover until 2018, as the title has been delayed.

  • News Sonic Mania Says Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer

    Bad Eggman

    The Year of Dreams™ has taken a temporary blow, as Sonic Mania has been pushed out of its Spring release window and into the Summer instead. It's only a matter of months, of course – and should result in an overall better product. The delay was confirmed at SXSW earlier today, where SEGA also showed off the first footage of Flying...

  • News Persona 5 Gets Delayed Until April on PS4, PS3

    Back into the shadows

    Bah. There was a rumour earlier this week saying that Persona 5 would be slapped with a delay here in the West, but the source wasn't something that we could base a report on. Sadly, that doesn't matter anymore, because Atlus has now confirmed that the role-playing release really has been delayed in both North America and...

  • News EA Not Against Delaying Mass Effect: Andromeda Again

    Time and space

    According to EA, Mass Effect: Andromeda is still slated to release this fiscal year, which means that it's on course to launch by the end of March 2017. When you stop and think about it, that's not too far away, is it? Don't shoot your hype into orbit just yet, though, as the publisher has revealed that it's certainly not against...

  • News PS4 Exclusive Gravity Rush 2 Tumbles into 2017

    Another one bites the dust

    Well, this is becoming an unfortunate reoccurrence, isn't it? There's not one game that Sony hasn't delayed this year, and Gravity Rush 2 is the latest to join the "pushed back" party. To be fair to the Japan Studio developed title, this very much appears to be a marketing move rather than a production problem – but...

  • News Gran Turismo Sport Delayed to 2017 on PS4

    Developer needs more time

    Gran Turismo Sport has been delayed to 2017, with developer Polyphony Digital stating that it needs more time to perfect the title.

  • News Square Enix Officially Delays Final Fantasy XV to 29th November

    Final version to be bundled with big day one patch

And today Square Enix has confirmed that the delay is indeed real: Final Fantasy XV has been pushed...

  • News Final Fantasy XV Buckles Up Until 29th November on PS4

    Phoenix down

    Remember when Square Enix put on a massive press conference to announce the release date for Final Fantasy XV? The surprisingly solid show ended with a comical red buzzer, which when pressed cycled through a dozen different potential release dates. It teetered on November for a nanosecond, before settling on 30th September. The...

  • News Fallout 4 Mods Suffer Another Setback on PS4

    The saga continues

    PlayStation 4 mod support for Fallout 4 has fallen foul of another setback today as Bethesda has revealed that the incoming mods beta on Sony's console has been delayed. Naturally, we assume this means that actual mod functionality - which was supposedly going to be in place relatively soon - will now be pushed back. It's also...

  • News Batman: Return to Arkham Delayed on PS4

    No Batusi just yet

    Warner Bros. has delayed Batman: Return to Arkham a month before its original 29th July release date, with no sign of a new launch window.

  • News Yep, No Man's Sky Has Been Delayed Again on PS4

    No man, why

    It was inevitable, we suppose. Just two weeks ahead of Sony's E3 2016 press conference, No Man's Sky appears to have been hit with another delay. The information comes straight from the game's media page on playstation.com, so we'd say that it's pretty much official. You can probably expect some sort of statement from Sony or developer...

  • Rumour Is No Man's Sky Landing on Our Planet Later Than Expected?

    Space sim may be delayed

    No Man's Sky may have been delayed – disappointing millions but helping with our post-E3 recovery immensely. The ambitious space-faring sim was originally scheduled for a 21st June release date, but all has been quiet in outer-space for some time now, and sources tell Kotaku that the title has been pushed back. The...

    Crap crap crap

    Here's a nice Christmas gift for you: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has been delayed yet again on the PlayStation 4.

  • News Star Ocean 5 Delays Its Adventures on PS4, PS3

    The stars aren't out tonight

    Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has been looking pretty promising lately, so it's a bit of a shame to hear that it's been delayed in Japan. The role-playing game, which features hectic, action-based combat, was previously slated for release on the 25th February, but the launch date's now been pushed back to...

  • News Mirror's Edge 2 Stumbles into May on PS4

    DICE's open world runner delayed

    In the Push Square office earlier today, we were having a conversation about just how good the PlayStation 4's lineup in early 2016 looks. It only took a few hours for one of those games to get delayed. Mirror's Edge Catalyst, the long-awaited parkour-'em-up from DICE, has tripped and stumbled into May. It was...

  • News Activision Should Cancel the PS3 Version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

    Scuffed knees

    Good news PlayStation 3 owners: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 has been delayed. The skateboarding simulation – which, to be fair, wasn't entirely despised in our review – is spending a little more time in the skate shop on last-gen formats, while Activision properly applies some band aids to the PlayStation 4 version. The game was...

  • News Hitman PS4 Whacked Until March 2016

    Blood worry

    The reveal of Hitman's reboot won't go down in history. The confusing announcement made during Sony's big E3 2015 conference only got more baffling when it was confirmed that Agent 47's revival would be released piecemeal. IO-Interactive's sticking with that approach, but it's at least decided to bide its time, and put the release on...

The revised launch date has been revealed as part of a whole new trailer that isn't readily available as an Internet video just yet – but we'll post a story on it as soon as possible. We hate to say we told you so, but we have been saying this for...

  • News Grand Ages: Medieval Delays Its Invasion on PS4

    Stop the march

    Real time strategy title Grand Ages: Medieval has been delayed on PlayStation 4 due to manufacturing issues that publisher Kalypso Media cites as being beyond its control.

  • News PS4 RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Packs Up Until May 2015

    Toil and trouble

    With so many games launching broken this Christmas, we can totally stomach a delay – and while The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may have been right at the very top of your New Year wishlist, at least you can be confident that it won’t be shipping with game breaking bugs. CD Projekt RED has pushed back the PlayStation 4 role-playing game...

  • News PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Contained Until March

The dreary release will now deploy on 24th March in North America and 27th March in Europe. That should give you enough time to mentally prepare yourself for the horrors that linger...

  • News PS4 Sequel Batman: Arkham Knight Bites the Dust Until 2015

    Too late, Two-Face

    Industry veteran Mark Cerny may have paraded the PlayStation 4’s simplistic development architecture prior to release, but it doesn’t appear to have made making next-gen games that much easier. Hot on the heels of The Order: 1886 and a spate of other titles, Warner Bros has confirmed that Batman: Arkham Knight will not...
