Square Enix has delayed Forspoken again. The upcoming PS5 and PC RPG was originally set to launch in May this year but was delayed to October. Sadly, the development team has now decided to push the game all the way into 2023. Forspoken will now launch on 24 January next year.
In a tweet, the official Forspoken Twitter account shared the news saying that the game is actually complete. The tweet says that all game assets are completed and the studio now wants to spend time polishing up the experience. It seems that the two extra months of development time will make this possible.
Square Enix followed up with confirmation that the publisher will debut more gameplay and content surrounding Forspoken this “summer” (before the end of August). While there are no more gaming events planned for the weeks ahead, perhaps the publisher will host its own private reveal for the game.
