It appears that Bethesda Softworks and developer Arkane Lyon’s upcoming game Deathloop may be stuck in a delay loop as the game has been delayed today once again.
Deathloop was supposed to launch next month on May 21 on PlayStation 5 and PC but has now been delayed to September 14. The game was originally going to launch in holiday 2020 alongside the PlayStation 5 before it was delayed to May 21.
The team appears to need a bit more time due to the challenges of working from home due to COVID. Hopefully they break the delay loop and we finally get to play Deathloop this September. Here is the team’s message to the fans:
We’ve made the decision to delay the launch of Deathloop to September 14, 2021.
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.
We apologize for the extended wait and thank you all for your passion and excitement. It is the fuel that powers our creativity and our hard work. We can’t wait to show you more Deathloop soon!
