“We are committed to quality and upholding our team’s ambitions for Deathloop while ensuring the health and safety of everyone at Arkane.”the statement read. “We will use this extra time to achieve our goal: to create a fun, stylish and mind-blowing gamer experience.”.
Deathloop was originally intended to launch in the PlayStation 5 launch window, so it was expected around November / December 2020. Arkane delayed the project until Q2 2021, setting the date to May 21. But now we will have to wait a few more months, with September 14 being the new date.
As for the game’s release schedule, this moves Deathloop away from the Resident Evil Village and Mass Effect Legendary releases, so there is now more room on their schedule for those titles.

We remember that Deathloop will be completely exclusive to PS5 on consoles. However, the Arkane Studios title will also arrive on PC in September. We recently learned that the game will not be able to premiere on Xbox Series X | S until at least May 2022. But with this delay, the date could also vary.
