The Digimon Survive release date came up during Digimon Con 2022 Q&A. However, it will still be some time before we see it. Producer Kazumasa Habu noted it will “take a little longer,” as they are “adjusting internally” and figuring out a date. Bandai Namco’s last delay pushed the title into 2022.
Habu apologized for the delays and wait during the session. He noted a change in its development team led to “rework on the game” and “uncertainty.”
Bandai Namco first revealed Digimon Survive back in 2018. It is a strategy game with visual novel elements. The goal will be to follow characters after a major incident as they suddenly encounter Digimon and are striving to survive. 113 total Digimon will appear. The actions players take will determine how the story will go. For example, it will be possible for characters to die. During the Digimon Con 2022 Q&A, Habu said the story will be 12 chapters long. There will be 3 routes to potentially follow.
The Digimon Survive is in development and its release date is expected to fall in 2022. Back when Bandai Namco first announced the game, it said that it would come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
