All hopes of Digimon Survive arriving before 2020 is through have been dashed, as Bandai Namco has officially delayed the game till next year.
In 2020 delays are very understandable, but given that the game was announced in 2018 (which feels like a million years ago) and was due to release in 2019, this is nonetheless disappointing.
By the sounds of it, it’ll be summer at least before Digimon Survive releases. When it does, it’ll be out on Switch, PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Producer Kazumasa Habu made the following statement regarding the delay:
The Digimon Survive team would like to extend our thanks to fans from around the world for their support during development, especially in these difficult times. We had originally planned to launch Digimon Survive in 2020, but current world events have shifted our development timing and we have made the difficult decision to push Digimon Survive‘s launch to 2021.
We thank you all for your continued patience as we work to create a fun and engaging tactical RPG game along with a memorable story for Digimon fans! We will share some exciting updates for Digimon Survive in spring 2021, so please stay tuned for more information.
