This is the second time Forspoken has been delayed. Previously, Forspoken was set to go on sale on May 24, 2022, and was pushed back to October 11, 2022.

Check out the tweet announcing the delay below.

The announcement does not give a specific reason for the Forspoken release date delay. It does state that the “strategic decision” comes as a result of discussions with “key partners”.  The team clarified that “all game elements” of Forspoken are complete, with development in its “final polishing phase”. The team thanked fans for their support and patience. It will share more information about Forspoken in Summer 2022.

Games like Forspoken can have their release date delayed for a variety of reasons. These range from unforeseen issues in development to an overly crowded initial release window. Even external circumstances, such as the COVID-19 pandemic or global events can force a team to rethink the best time for their game to debut.

Forspoken is in development. Its current release date is January 24, 2023. It will launch on PS5 and PC.
