Today has brought bad news for fans of the upcoming Marvel's Midnight Suns game originally scheduled for Spring 2022 as Firaxis Games today announced that the game’s release has been delayed.
In a statement, the games creative director Jake Solomon along with Senior Franchise Producer Garth DeAngelis shared the news and didn’t provide a new release date for the game instead simply the second half of 2022.
The pair claim that the extra time will be used wisely to add more story, cinematics, and polish to the game which is “essential in helping us make out vision a reality”.
The XCOM style Marvel game was first announced at Gamescom 2021 back in August and will bring a roster of heroes to the forefront who aren’t particularly represented in popular Marvel games along with the usual Xmen and Avengers team members.
Even with its delay, the game is still set to release sometime in the last half of 2022 and will be available for gamers on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox.
