Arkane Lyon Has Delayed Deathloop
Arkane Lyon has officially delayed the release of Deathloop until Q2 2021. The title was originally planned for 2020, but Arkane Lyon is facing development challenges due to working from home. Apparently maintaining a next-gen quality level is taking Arkane Lyon longer than expected, resulting in the need for extra time and a delay for the game’s release. Deathloop recently got a reveal trailer during a game showcase for the PS5. Deathloop is expected to launch on next-gen consoles and PC in 2021.
“We’ve made the decision to move the launch date of Deathloop to Q2 2021. Our ambition for Deathloop is to deliver a signature Arkane game that takes you to never-before-seen places in a stylish new world,” said an official statement from Arkane Lyon. “At the same time, the health and safety of everyone at Arkane Lyon remains our top priority. As we’ve adjusted to work-from-home, we found that delivering this new and exciting experience, at the polish and quality level that defines both an Arkane game and a true next-gen experience, is 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,” continued the Arkane Lyon statement. “While we know this is the right decision for Deathloop, we share your disappointment, and apologize for making you wait even longer. Thank you for your support and excitement. Your positive feedback has helped fuel us as we continue to work from the confines of our homes. We can’t wait to share more details about Deathloop with you, so keep your eyes open for our next update.”
