Earlier in October 2020, Digimon Survive Producer Kazumasa Habu suggested that the game could end up being delayed. He noted there was a review of its development that could alter the timeline. Now, Bandai Namco confirmed a Digimon Survive delay that will push the game into 2021.
The updated notes suggested that this might be a game that will appear later in 2021. With the new statement from Habu, it noted that the next development update will be shared in Spring 2021. “These difficult times,” i.e. the COVID-19 pandemic, was cited as part of the cause for the delay.
Here is Habu’s full Digimon Survive delay announcement.
The Digimon Survive team would like to extend our thanks to fans from around the world for their support during development, especially in these difficult times. We had originally planned to launch Digimon Survive in 2020, but current world events have shifted our development timing and we have made the difficult decision to push Digimon Survive’s launch to 2021.
We thank you all for your continued patience as we work to create a fun and engaging tactical RPG game along with a memorable story for Digimon fans! We will share some exciting updates for Digimon Survive in Spring 2021, so please stay tuned for more information.
Digimon Survive will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2021.
