The Medium Is Another Game Hit By Delays
Bloober Team has officially delayed its next-gen title, The Medium, stating on Twitter that it won’t be releasing until January. The Medium was originally slated to release on December 10th, a month after the release of the Xbox Series X/S, but the launch has been moved to January 28th. Similar to Cyberpunk 2077’s recent delay, gamers will only have to wait an extra month to get their hands on Bloober Team’s next-gen title, but that pushes it to over two months after the release of Xbox Series X/S. The Medium will join the extensive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate lineup when it releases in January.
“After much careful thought and consideration, today we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Medium to January 28th, 2021,” said Bloober Team in their official statement. “It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but one made due to the COVID-19 situation in Poland, as well as the current schedule of other games on the market. Bloober Team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious, fear-inducing experience to date.”
“The additional development time will allow us to add further polish, ensuring we deliver our innovative, genre-pushing vision of interactive psychological horror,” continued the official statement from Bloober Team. “Rest assured, the delay will not stop us sharing information with you, and you can expect us to unravel a few more layers of The Medium’s great mystery soon. Stay tuned and stay safe.” Bloober Team joins a long list of developers delaying their projects due to COVID-19 complications, and going into next-gen, some gamers wondered whether or not the consoles themselves would be delayed.
