This isn’t the first game to be delayed. The release of Xbox’s crown jewel, Halo Infinite, was also pushed to next year. The decision to do so came after the game’s graphics were heavily condemned for being mediocre.

Games like Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 and Crysis Remastered are also in the same boat, and Deathloop is the latest addition.

PlayStation 5 exclusive Deathloop brought something different to the table

The game was unveiled at the PlayStation 5 reveal event and truly impressed the audience. It brings something new to the table and is nothing like your normal run and gun game.

The game’s description reads “DEATHLOOP transports you to the mysterious island of Blackreef, where an eternal struggle between two extraordinary assassins will determine the island’s future.

“As Colt, you must find a way to put an end to the timeloop trapping the island in an endless cycle, all while being hunted by the island’s inhabitants.

“Using your powerful weapons and abilities, you’ll need to take out 8 key targets across the stunning, yet chaotic, island before the day resets in order break the loop once and for all.

This is bad news for PlayStation fans. This is one timed-exclusive that everyone was looking forward to. Now, it won’t be available immediately after the PS5 is launched. However, this doesn’t affect any of the other exclusives coming to PlayStation 5, a silver lining after all.

But, if this is the start of games being delayed on Sony’s side too, it’s not a good sign. The global pandemic has indeed made it difficult for developers to deliver their work on time, and Deathloop is its latest victim.

The 2021 launch date has not been cemented as of yet.
