Originally scheduled to release in March 2021, Sony has confirmed Returnal’s new release date will be April 30, 2021.
“Returnal has a new release date of April 30, 2021,” said Sony in the tweet. “SIE and Housemarque have made the decision to move the release date in order to give the team extra time to continue to polish the game to the level of quality players expect from Housemarque. See you in April!”
In case you missed it, the game’s official description reads as follows: “After crash-landing on this shape-shifting world, Selene must search through the barren landscape of an ancient civilization for her escape. Isolated and alone, she finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again, she’s defeated – forced to restart her journey every time she dies.
“Through relentless roguelike gameplay, you’ll discover that just as the planet changes with every cycle, so do the items at your disposal. Every loop offers new combinations, forcing you to push your boundaries and approach combat with a different strategy each time.”
Thankfully it’s just a short delay for Returnal, which hopefully means development is still going fairly well. We’ve all seen what happens when a game releases before its time, so it’s good to see Sony making the right choices!
Returnal comes exclusively to PS5 on April 30, 2021
