In a statement published on Thursday, developer Arkane Lyon said it was “committed to quality and preserving our team’s ambitions for Deathloop while ensuring health and safety of everyone at Arkane.”
Damn and I had a vacation scheduled around its launch.
Play Resident Evil Village instead. They were a day apart so its good for Deathloop that it isn't relasing then
@camel_toad Took Off? This isnt a world of warcraft expansion, death loop seems like a short game they are using the loop to extend gameplay lol its a fps rogue like lol. Or just play Hades im sure its better.
@anubusgold When I use a week's vacation I just like to make sure there's something new to play that I'm interested in. I'm mainly looking forward to it because Ive really liked everything Arkane Studios has made. I was planning to have that to play and plenty of games from my backlog. @versusDMC I'm hesitant to play Resident Evil village until there's a VR version, if that even happens. I played RE7 in VR all the way through and it was one of the best gaming experiences I had had in years. If I play the new one without VR I'll feel like I'm missing out.
I had a philling this was going to happen can’t have it on gp have them delay it while working on the xbsx🤷🏿
This makes no sense. The Xbox XS versions will be delayed too to match the 1 year exclusivity deal.
The comment above is a fanboy simulation thank you for falling it 😂 🤣 😂 key word PHILLING 😂
Just like Starfield will be delayed as well
Just like *Insert any video game title due to be released* will be delayed as well.
Delayed from when? Was there a release date given, or are you just name dropping Bethesda games for the hell of it? And no, rumors are not release date reveals.
@Shken At this point, the safe bet is a game will be delayed.
A lot of games gets delayed from all developers. I'll play your game though. Halo Infinite has been in development for over 6 years and the last demo was underwhelming and awful.
@InUrFoxHole You cannot delay a game that has no release date.
Prepping it for Dat XSX baby!
It’s going to be delayed on XSX until September 2022 now
Damn man! This and back 4 blood has me bummed. April was stacked though so I’m low key glad lol.
Back4Blood got delayed to Fall, too. That late-Q3 to mid-Q4 is always crowded and now its getting even more crowded.
I meant may. I have returnal, biomutant, re8 and mass effect waiting to download so I’m not too bummed. It still sucks though. I don’t know of any games releasing in fall besides maybe ragnarok.
You sure Ragnarok's releasing this year? Forbidden West is releasing that quarter.
Sure? No. I believe it is releasing in 2021.
We should've known it was 1 big April fools jk
These past two years have sucked for game companies. Lots of struggles to deal with. Shame that it's delayed, but it will end up being for the best I'm sure.
Ya being part of a 7.5 billion dollar buyout really sucks.
It does for the devs not the people who made the real money. They are now in a subscription based culture they didn’t make any $
Yeah there’s this one other little thing that’s been a bit of a disruption for companies trying to hit deadlines. It’s called “Covid”, you could probably google it.
Mind if expected with learning the new hardware. Games will get easier to dev for as this gen ages.
Delayed five months.
Downvoted for posting the most important snippet of information. People are weird
They are not downvoting what I said. They are downvoting me. I'm fine with that.
@RazzerRedux - hey man, I'm in the same boat. Plenty of people on this site have a problem with me and downvote anything I say. It is what it is.
@UltrawomaMAN you made a alt account to post your opinion because you didn’t have the balls to use your original account, kinda pathetic let alone what you said. The amount of downvotes on this post across all users is very strange. You can almost walk on top of the salt.
You are spoiling us !!!! 😉
Must be having issues to be delayed twice.
I mean France went into lockdown again due to COVID so yeah things haven't been easy for the studio.
It seems several businesses are going through it causing delays.
Some people here in the U.S. act like Covid19 is only affecting the U.S.. Lockdowns have been worldwide. Paris is on full lockdown!
We have the pandemic dude.
Disagree. We don't have a pandemic. /s
Got 6/10 written all over it, hoping they're making it look a bit more interesting
Highly disappointing. Wish they would have just done a longer delay the first time rather than this incremental stuff. Still, hopefully this gives them enough time to get it into really good shape. Plus, this gives me more time with Returnal, which at this point was only going to be a few weeks before Deathloop.
Returnal and Resident Evil 8 are coming in the meantime. Mass Effect Trilogy too if it doesn't get delayed. I'm fine with the delay as I'll be busy with those 3.
Another delay for Deathloop? Not a great look for the studio. Disappointing, but what are you going to do? Nothing. Hope Returnal stays on track for late April. Oh well.
Returnal has gone gold so you're good. And that's gold for Sony standards and not CD project red gold standards. :)
You do know a pandemic is still going on right?
You do know that they announced the April release date while working in the midst of a pandemic, right?
Don't care much about a game delay, care very much about the mental health of the guys and girls making these great games.
Great games!...... Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Great for the game that's being delayed would be selling around 5 to 7million on the PlayStation platform...... That's not gonna happen.
Probably not enough ps5s to play it. So just waiting. That's the smart thing to do especially if a game is mediocre. You don't want a handful of people to play it and tell the truth and then when ps5s are readily available no one gets it. Kind of like returnals reasons. Just my humble opinion.
I can agree with that.. the whole cyberpunk issue has made devs rethink their strategies
More likely just having issues reaching the finish line. France just went back into lockdown which is where this studio is located.
Probably on purpose. I'm actually surprised Bethesda did not one but two ps5 exclusives because they are so anti Sony it's crazy. I bet they are play testing this game with Xbox controllers like that one time they were supposedly playing skyrim on ps3 with a 360 controller in their hand.
France has gone into another lock down so that is more than likely to do with it rather than the conspiracy theory that you believe
It's not conspiracy to say the Bethesda has been pro Xbox for a decade. Most PS games are super buggy messes on launch. Also weird how now it's another delay right after Microsoft buys them and STILL has no game release dates 5 months into the Gen.
moan about games releasing with problems then moan about a delay the next sentence... :D Bethesda don't hate Sony - the historical reason for the events you detail is because Beth were traditionally a PC developer and the PS3 was not only a completely different architecture to anything else that has ever been made but they also didn't help third party devs at all in the early years with supplying dev kits and documentation. Bethesda were just one of many devs that had major headaches in the first few years of PS3. That, in combination with the fact PS3 got a 12+ month delay in Western regions meant Beth partnered with MS for Oblivion and it was huge success. There's nothing sinister, just a natural relationship that built. Not too dissimilar to say, FromSoftware with Sony.
It had a release day of may 6 which was a day before RE8...so it's good for them it got delayed.
No it didn't. It was coming out May 21 which was a couple weeks after RE8.
Yep. Don't know why i had 6th in my head. It actually had 3 weeks of calm before the june 10-11 trifecta of Guilty Gear, FF7 PS5 and Ratchet. I actually checked the dates this time.
This game looks terrible anyway. Bethesda’s products are pretty crap overall.
... strategy or actual development issue? hmmm
Or it could be because almost every game has been delayed during the pandemic. Hmmmmmmm.
you are literally the only one who thought i was being serious. and u said almost, not every game. plenty of games who havent been delayed xD
is this game going to get stuck in a "Death Loop" :P
If you said a Delay Loop you might've had a good joke there
I thought it was coming for PC as well as PS at launch.
Classy move by MS to not release a broken game to get it in Gamepass faster.
It's not getting in Game Pass any faster. Sony has a 1 year deal on it and that starts when the game releases, not when it was going to release originally in 2020.
If they release it broken in May and get it in Game Pass next May now its next September. Nice to see MS caring about the quality of their work even for Play Station.
Sincere question: delayed games rarely turn out to be gems, correct? It's usually a sign that something is wrong.
