At this point, it’s beginning to feel like the release itself is stuck in the endless loop that its gameplay is built around: Deathloop has been delayed until 14th September. The title – originally due out at launch on PlayStation 5 and PC – was slated to release on 21st May, but has been pushed back once again due to ongoing coronavirus complications.
Arkane Lyon admits that it wants to preserve “our team’s ambitions […] while ensuring the health and safety of everyone”. It continues: “We’ll be using the extra time to accomplish our goal: create a fun, stylish, and mind-bending player experience.” Honestly, it’s fair enough really – these are unprecedented times, and there’s no point in rushing the product if you don’t have to.
The studio did go on to apologise for the wait, and hinted that it “can’t wait to show more soon”. Obviously this does weaken the PS5’s release schedule somewhat, but we’re sure it’ll be worth it in the end.
