Returnal, the next game from Resogun– and Matterfall-creates Housemarque, still does not reach its planned release date March 19. The launch of the PlayStation 5-exclusive game has been put on hold for just over a month, and it will not come until April 30.
The postponement was announced on Thursday, in a card Twitter message from Sony. There, the company explains that it has agreed with developer Housemarque that Returnal needs a little more time in the oven.
– Returnal has a new release date – April 30, 2021. Sony Interactive Entertainment and Housemarque have decided to move the launch date to give the team extra time to continue polishing the game, so that it reaches the quality level that players expect from Housemarque, the statement reads. .
Shoot yourself to freedom
Returnal was originally unveiled during one of Sony’s PlayStation 5 presentations last year. As a shooter from a third-person point of view, it stands out in a slightly different direction than what Housemarque has delivered before, but it still seems to offer familiar elements such as bullet rain and a wide range of colors.
Players control an astronaut who has crash-landed on an alien planet. There she is attacked by a bunch of different creatures, and every time she dies she has to start all over again.
The upcoming Harry Potter role-playing game is also delayed.
