Bandai Namco has announced that Digimon Survive has been delayed to 2022. Producer Kazumasa Habu announced this on Twitter, as revealing the reason behind this additional delay.
“Our original goal was to launch Digimon Survive in 2021. However, due to the need to allocate more time to development, it is necessary to move the game’s release date to 2022. While this decision hasn’t been an easy one, we want to make sure we use this extra time to enhance the quality of the game,” wrote Habu in the statement.
Back in July, Toei Animation’s financial report suggested that Digimon Survive’s release date delayed to “Q3 2022 and beyond,” but there was not official announcement at that time. Obviously, Habu’s statement is confirmation of the suggested delay.
Digimon Survive was announced back in 2018 and was supposed to launch in 2020. Then in October of last year, Bandai Namco and Habu announced a delay for the game into 2021. This is the second delay, dragging the game through another year.
The game is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, the numerous delays could mean the possibility of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions.
