Major 2022 PlayStation 5 Exclusive Delay by Five Months
We gamers accept that game delays are part of the ecosystem. It almost always leads to better products.
Horizon Forbidden West was delayed for six months to avoid a developer crunch. It looks amazing. Hogwarts Heritage seems like a rumour given the long development process. It was last seen in 2020. Rumours suggest it may be next year.
Luminous Productions, the developers of the Square Enix-published Unspoken – has announced that the game will be delayed. The game was initially scheduled for release on 25 May 2022. However, it was announced that the exclusive timed console exclusive will not be available on PlayStation 5 or PC until October.
The Forspoken was unveiled at The Game Awards in 2021 (see the trailer below) and officially announced in March 2017. It features Frey Holland, a female protagonist from New York, and is suddenly transported to a fantasy world. This release is a part of Amy Hennig’s Nathan Drake series.
Forspoken will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive console for the first two years after release. However, it will also be available on PC simultaneously.
Square Enix has enjoyed mixed success in recent years. The Switch exclusive Triangle Strategy has received a lot of praise from fans and critics alike. It seems that is unlikely to follow up on the disappointing sales of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. The game is coming to Game Pass. This is a great game. We’ll have to wait till autumn to see which path Forspoken will take.
