Midnight sunone A turn-based strategy game set in the Marvel universe and made by the very people behind XCOMwas delayed again.
The game was first announced a year agoand was originally supposed to launch in March 2022. While it doesn’t exactly like Firaxis’ XCOM series-for example there will be no forever– the studio’s pedigree and the fact this is a turn-based strategy game means those associations are pretty much the norm when it comes to this game.
Next time we write about gamesHowever, things don’t look too hot. Until November Midnight sun was delayed to the second half of 2022, maybe later”a lot of fan skepticism after a previous match live stream showed some uneven images.”
Now it is delayed again. Like IGN reporttransparent Take-Two’s earnings results earlier today, it was announced that Midnight sun will not appear until “the end of this fiscal year”. Since the current fiscal year doesn’t end until March 31, 2023, that certainly suggests a 2023 release, or at least a very late 2022 release.
The decision to delay the game was once again made “To ensure the teams at Firaxis Games and 2K deliver the best possible experience for our fans.” Which is good! A delayed game is finally good, etc.. And it’s been especially difficult lately with the pandemic and spending working from home, so if it takes another 6-12 months for this game to work well, whatever.
It should be noted though that this delay only applies to some of the platforms the game is for. PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X versions | S are the versions that will be available at the end of March 2023; Last-gen versions for PS4, Xbox One and Switch will follow later that.
