Firaxis Games released a statement announcing that Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been delayed to the second half of 2022.
The game was previously announced to release in March 2022, but the developer understands that they won’t be able to hit this release window. It’s good that the team understands this before release instead of announcing it a month before release day though, which shows that the team is confident that this extra time will improve the game through early development.
The statement adds:
We decided to share that we’ve made the very tough decision to move our launch window to the second half of 2022. We know many fans were looking forward to playing the game originally next spring, and this decision did not come lightly. We decided to push our launch because we need more time to make this the best game possible. We believe in our creative vision for Marvel’s Midnight Suns and want to do justice in delivering an unforgettable adventure set in the supernatural side of Marve. These extra months will be used to add more story, cinematics and overall polish and will be essential in helping us make our vision a reality.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns has players assume the role of “The Hunter,” a customizable superhero who joins the crew. Further, players are able to play as other heroes included Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Blade, and more. Combat is turn-based that borrows elements of the developer’s XCOM series, where players will guide units through environments to take down enemies.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
