Forspoken Receives 5-Month Delay; Now Releasing October 2022
Square Enix has announced that their upcoming action-adventure title, Forspoken, has received a significant delay. Initially planned to release on May 24, 2022, the game will now be launching on October 11, 2022. The primary reasoning given for this notable occurrence regards the game’s polish, with the team desiring for the product to be in the most qualitative shape possible prior to release.

Forspoken follows Frey as she enters Athia for the first time after being transported from New York City. She then discovers a magical, sentient bracelet has wrapped around her arm. With her new companion, named “Cuff,” Frey navigates the mysterious and sprawling landscapes of Athia in her search for a way home. Forspoken has been designed specifically for the PlayStation 5 and takes advantage of the console to create a game that feels like an authentic next-gen experience.
The gameplay shown mirrors the fast action we’ve seen in games like Final Fantasy XV, but with a more streamlined action system. Players will have access to several abilities and skills, but we don’t know much about the RPG features just yet.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the release of Forspoken, which is currently planned for PlayStation 5 and PC.
