Original story: Developer Mundfish plans to reveal the release date for its alt-history FPS Atomic Heart later today, but retailers and the Microsoft Store are jumping the gun: it's out on 21st February 2023 for PS5, PS4. Pre-order pages are being spotted on the backend, which lists a Premium Edition for the aforementioned date that bundles in an Atomic Pass, two weapon skins, and a digital art book. Amazon UK also briefly noted a physical launch for 21st February 2023.

The release date should be confirmed by the studio in just a few hours, meaning Atomic Heart adds to the increasingly crowded release schedule at the start of next year. In the space of roughly seven weeks, Forspoken, Dead Space, Dead Island 2, Hogwarts Legacy, Like a Dragon: Ishin!, Octopath Traveler II, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, and Resident Evil 4 are all slated to launch.
