Deathloop Has Been Pushed Back to September

deathloop (1)

Deathloop, originally due out next month, has been delayed till September.

That’s not that unexpected, quite a few titles have been pushed back due to different circumstances. Some were delayed for extra polish, others cited Coronavirus as an issue. In Deathloop’s case, the reason for this time-looping shoot-em-up’s delay appears to be a combination of the two.

“We’re committed to quality and preserving our team’s ambitions for DEATHLOOP, while ensuring the health and safety of everyone at Arkane. We’ll be using this extra time to accomplish our goal: create a fun, stylish and mind-bending player experience,” reads a post on the official Deathloop Twitter.

Developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, the game casts you as an assassin repeating the same day over and over again, his only hope of escape being to kill eight other assassins. The catch is that these assassins are spread all over the island, so tracking them down and dispatching them in one day will likely require some speedrunning-level skills.

Deathloop’s new release date is September 14th and will be available on PC and Playstation 5 (as Sony has console exclusivity to the title). Arkane hasn’t had a duff title in a decade so we’re reasonably confident it’ll be worth waiting for.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
