Leaked before E3 and getting officially revealed during Gamescom, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, the tactical-RPG with an emphasis on cards from developer Firaxis was initially set to drop in March of next year. It even got a big blowout in Game Informer, going as far to get a slick cover from Ryan Stegman.
Players will now have to wait a little longer to spend some time with the Suns, as it has now been moved out of its March window to an undetermined time in the second half of next year. This news today came from the official twitter account for the game.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is one of many titles that have suffered a delay as studios are still acclimating to their staff working from home amid the seemingly never ending pandemic. Hopefully this means that when it eventually launches, Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be in the best shape in can possibly be and that the team at Firaxis will avoid needless crunch and overtime. Eidos-Montréal, who just released the exceptional Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, along with their studio in Sherbrooke have begun transitioning to 4 day work weeks in order to provide a better work-life balance for their employees.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will now arrive in the second half of 2022 for the PlayStation and Xbox family of consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC.
