Square Enix has recently announced a brand new release date for the upcoming Life is Strange Remastered Collection. Previously, the game was scheduled to launch later this year (2021). But unfortunately, due to the whole pandemic situation, it was pushed to 2022. Basically, the delay is to alleviate the extra pressure off the development team. Deck Nine (developer of Life is Strange Remastered Collection) confirmed this delay in August 2021.

The title was first announced way back in March 2021 alongside the latest entry in the series, Life is Strange: True Colors. Few days after the remastered version was delayed due to Covid-19 pandemic challenges, True Colors (only the Nintendo Switch Version) was also delayed.

The release date (September 10) was pushed to later this year. Life is Strange: True Color is a stunning addition to the series. It brings the most loved protagonist yet, with absolutely mesmerizing Haven spring and a true supporting team.
