Last fall, During Gamescom, Take-Two studio Firaxis Games revealed a new turn-based tactical RPG from the XCOM team named Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
Taking place on the “darker side of the Marvel Universe” and pitting famous heroes like Iron Man, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Blade, Captain America, and Captain Marvel against Lilith, a supernatural villain, it was initially planned for release in March before being moved back until October 7th.
Along with reporting Q1 2023 revenues, today, the publisher revealed another hold without many specific details on when the game will be released. Furthermore, the game currently seems to have a separation release strategy, with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, and Computer versions due before the end of March next year (whenever Take-Two renews its fiscal period), while PS4, Xbox One, and Switch editions have a “TBA” release date.
In the news revealed to Polygon, the company said, “We have decided to push back the launch timing of Marvel’s Midnight Suns to confirm the teams at Firaxis Games and 2K produce the best possible knowledge for our fans.
The title will launch after this fiscal year on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. The Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions will follow later.”
This statement is the first to include T2’s mixed results with newly-acquired Zynga, which has a Disney-licensed title of its own delayed with a non-specific release plan.
Weeks ago, Zynga informed Star Wars Hunters that a multiplayer “competitive arena combat game” had been moved back for release in 2023.
