Marvel's Midnight Suns has been delayed once again, developer Firaxis Games has announced.
First announced in August 2021, the superhero-based tactical RPG was originally due to launch in March 2022, before being delayed a few months later. Eventually, a new October release date was revealed, but now it appears that Marvel's Midnight Suns might not release within this calendar year.
“After discussion with the team, we've made the decision to move back the launch timing of Marvel's Midnight Suns to ensure we are delivering the best possible experience for our fans,” reads the official announcement.
The game will now launch on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC “later this fiscal year”, which could be any time up until 31st March 2023. The game will then come to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch at a later date.
“We know fans are looking forward to playing Marvel's Midnight Suns and we will use this extra time to make sure we are delivering the best possible experience for everyone. Marvel's Midnight Suns is easily the biggest game we've ever made and we're incredibly appreciative of all the support players have shared with us throughout the years. Thank you.”
Marvel's Midnight Suns had been revving up the marketing machine in recent weeks, with several character trailers giving us insights into Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange.
