Marvel’s Midnight Suns Indefinitely Delayed
The highly anticipated game set in the Marvel universe, Midnight Suns, was just delayed for a second time, this time indefinitely. The developer behind the game, Firaxis, has given no clear window as to when the title could ship, listing the release date for this tactical roleplaying game simply as “TBA.”
The news comes from a recent earnings report by publisher Take-Two in which the company revealed that it was forced to push back the release of Midnight Suns in order "to ensure the teams at Firaxis Games and 2K deliver the best possible experience for our fans." What features if any will be changed or dropped remains to be seen.
According to Take-Two, Midnight Suns could still be coming out "later this fiscal year.” In other words, fans of the franchise could have the game at some point before March, 2022. The company however did not give a specific date.
Midnight Suns was initially scheduled to ship this past March, last fiscal year in so far as Take-Two is concerned. The game was however delayed into October, the developer citing increases in the difficulty of making games based on the latest technology.
Chief Executive Officer at Take-Two Strauss Zelnick described how the most recent delay was the result of a "search for quality and a great deal of confidence that we have a wonderful title on our hands and we want to make sure it's as good as it can possibly be," according to an interview by IGN. As for a third delay, the executive is apparently "not concerned about that."
Midnight Suns was revealed at Gamescom in August, 2021. The title was initially slated to be released in early 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC with a version for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch to follow at a later date. The upcoming tactical roleplaying game by Firaxis will feature superheroes from various Marvel properties including Avengers, X-Men, and Runaways.
