Instead, it’s now been pushed back to the second half of the year. Whenever it does arrive, it’ll be released on multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch. The “tough decision” was made to ensure this “dream project” for the team can be the best game possible when it is released.
Below is the full update courtesy of the development team:
On behalf of Firaxis Games, thank you for sharing just how excited you are for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. We’ve been thrilled to see your reaction to everything from our announcement of the game to the reveal of our card-based tactical combat. Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a true dream project for the team and we can’t express what an honor it is to create something new in the Marvel Universe.
We decided to share that we’ve made the very tough decision to move our launch window to the second half of 2022. We know many fans were looking forward to playing the game originally next spring, and this decision did not come lightly. We decided to push our launch because we need more time to make this the best game possible. We believe in our creative vision for Marvel’s Midnight Suns and want to do justice in delivering an unforgettable adventure set in the supernatural side of Marvel. These extra months will be used to add more story, cinematics and overall polish and will be essential in helping us make our vision a reality.
Thank you for understanding—you are the best fans in the world.
—Jake Solomon, Creative Director and Garth DeAngelis, Senior Franchise Producer
