Forspoken, the Square Enix RPG from studio Luminous Productions, has been delayed.

The studio made the announcement on social media earlier today, confirming the release date has been changed. Initially planned for launch on 24th May, the game will now release on 11th October 2022 — a delay of nearly five months.

As stated in the above tweet, the studio says that "getting it right is extremely important to us", and will use the extra time to "focus all of our efforts on polishing the game". Luminous signs off by thanking its fans, saying it looks forward to "sharing more about Forspoken with you soon".

The game got a gameplay breakdown late last year, and it did look a little rough around the edges. Of course, delays are rarely a bad thing, but were you hoping to explore this intriguing world in May? Will you be picking this PlayStation 5 RPG up in October?
