Arkane Stu­dios next title, Deathloop, has been delayed until Q2 2021. This means instead of the hol­i­day 2020 win­dow, the game will now be released between April and June of next year Arkane did give a state­ment regard­ing the delay, chalk­ing it up to the work-from-home struc­ture tak­ing “longer than normal.”

This extra time will allow our team to bring Deathloop’s world to life with as much char­ac­ter and fun as you’ve come to expect from our team. While we know this is the right deci­sion for Deathloop, we share your dis­ap­point­ment, and apol­o­gize for mak­ing you wait even longer.”

Deathloop is a shoot­er, but with a Ground­hog Day type of twist. You play as an assas­sin name Colt who is trapped on a desert­ed island that resets every­day. In order to break the loop, he much take out num­ber of tar­gets before the end of the day, while avoid­ing the counter-assas­sin that hunts him. This unique mul­ti­play­er aspect lets oth­er play­ers come into your game as the counter-assas­sin, Juliana. Her job is to pro­tect the loop.

Deathloop has been con­firmed for the PlaySta­tion 5 and PC.
