Bethesda Softworks have announced that the release date for action adventure game Ghostwire: Tokyo has been delayed due to early 2022.
As previously reported, the game takes place in a Tokyo where 99% of the city’s population has vanished, after an “occult event.” What’s more, the main character’s own supernatural abilities begin to awaken.
Upgrading your powers, you fight off The Visitors, the evil spirits inspired by Japanese folklore. Due to the player’s powers being related to hand gestures, the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers come into play.
While last slated for October 2021, the game’s official Twitter account has announced a delay to early 2022. The statement also mentions while working hard on the game, the developers are “also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango [Gameworks].” This may suggest the delay was due to rising cases of COVID-19 in Japan.
You can find the full statement below.
“We’ve made the decision to delay the launch of Ghostwire: Tokyo to early 2022.
We want to get the game in your hands as soon as possible so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we’ve been hard at work building. At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release window will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life as we’ve always envisioned it.
Thank you for being patient as we work to bring you an experience unlike anything else we’ve ever made. We can’t wait to show you more in the coming months.”
