Deathloop Delayed To 2021


Deathloop, the next game from Arkane Studios, has been delayed from its holiday 2020 window. It is now slated for Q2 2021, and a statement from Arkane chalks the delay up to work-from-home structure due to the coronavirus taking “longer than normal.”

“This extra time will allow our team to bring Deathloop’s world to life with as much character and fun as you’ve come to expect from our team,” the statement reads. “While we know this is the right decision for Deathloop, we share your disappointment, and apologize for making you wait even longer.”

The new release window, set for Q2 2021, puts it in sometime from April-June.

Deathloop is a shooter with a Groundhog Day twist. You play as an assassin named Colt on a deserted island that resets at the end of each day. He has to take out a series of targets before the day ends, and avoid a counter-assassin that’s hunting him, to break the loop. A unique multiplayer element lets other players slip into your game as that counter-assassin, Juliana, whose job it is to protect the loop by taking out Colt before he can accomplish his mission.

Deathloop is confirmed for PC and PlayStation 5.
