– DEATHLOOP (@deathloop) April 8, 2021
“We are committed to quality and maintaining our team’s ambitions for Deathloop, while guaranteeing the health and safety of all people at Arkane,” the statement read. “We use this extra time to achieve our goal: Create a fun, stylish and thought-provoking gaming experience.”
Originally, Deathloop was scheduled for release in the launch window of PlayStation 5, and it was expected around November / December 2020. Arkane delayed the project until Q2 2021 and settled on May 21st. But now we have to wait a few more months, with September 14 being the new date.
As for the game release calendar, this Deathloop is moving away from the upcoming Resident Evil Village and Mass Effect Legendary edition, so there is now more room in your calendar for them.For more on Arkane’s fascinating new game, check out the full presentation on Deathloop from IGN Fan Fest earlier this year, where we learned that players will once again be able to use forces similar to those in Dishonored to succeed in their quest to break the time loop.
