Firaxis Studios is the official developer of the game and shared that this delay was a hard decision for them as well. The studio also shared that this delay will be totally worth it and will make this game the “best game possible.”

“We believe in our creative vision for Marvel’s Midnight Suns and want to do justice in delivering an unforgettable adventure set in the supernatural side of the Marvel.

The game sees players taking the role of The Hunter, a brand new hero that is revived by the titular organization to help fight against their mother Lilith, the Mother of All Demons.
