The announcement also confirmed Life is Strange: True Colors is on schedule for a September 10, 2021 release, with its Wavelengths DLC due to appear shortly after launch on September 30, 2021.
Deck Nine Games’ announcement included an explanation for the delay. It cited the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the reason. It said the move is designed to make things easier on the development team.
Here is the full statement going over why Life is Strange Remastered Collection is delayed, which was shared originally on Twitter.
We have some important updates for you on our upcoming release dates.
After Life is Strange: True Colors releases on September 10, we’re happy to announce that the Life is Strange Wavelengths DLC, starring Steph Gingrich, will release on September 30.
We will be revealing a first look via a new trailer tomorrow!
However, due to the ongoing challenges of the worldwide pandemic, we want to alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team by giving more time between the release of Life is Strange: True Colors and the Life is Strange Remastered Collection.
For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the Life is Strange Remastered Collection for all platforms—PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia, and Switch—until Early 2022.
We hope you understand.
Thank you for your patience and overwhelming support!
Life is Strange Remastered Collection will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Stadia in 2022.
