Deathloop has been postponed once more, with Arkane’s coordinated PS5 console exclusive moving from its past May 21st release date to a fall release on September 14th. The news denotes the second big delay for Deathloop, which was initially expected to be out in the 2020 holiday season close by the then-recently released PS5.
Similarly as with the earlier delay, Arkane’s Lyon studio is indeed refering to COVID-19-related delays, with an expanded trouble being developed as it attempts to guarantee “the health and safety of everyone at Arkane.”
Deathloop is the most recent title from Arkane’s Lyon studio, most popular for the Dishonored franchise and the rebooted Prey from 2017. Players expect the role of Colt, an assassin stuck in a time loop who should battle out by killing his eight targets utilizing a variety of weapons and mysterious powers — all while being pursued by a rival assassin, Julianna (who can be controlled by different players over the internet).
As a next-gen exclusive title, Deathloop is simply set to be released on the PlayStation 5 (for a one-year exclusivity period) and PC — notwithstanding the way that publisher Bethesda is presently owned by Microsoft.
Xbox studio head Phil Spencer told Bloomberg back in September that it’ll actually be holding to that timed exclusivity for both Deathloop and GhostWire: Tokyo. That implies, with the current postponement, Xbox proprietors will be standing by considerably more before they’re ready to head to Blackreef.
