Arkane Lyon’s title was expected on May 21. But the game, exclusive to PlayStation 5, will not be available on that date.
A second postponement
Initially expected for 2020, Deathloop had been postponed for the first time because of the coronavirus and the constraints of teleworking.But the game won’t be ready in time. Indeed, the studio confirmed on Twitter a report until September 14, 2021.
“We have made the decision to postpone the release of Deathloop until September 14, 2021. We are committed to ensuring quality and preserving the ambitions of our team while ensuring the health and safety of everyone at Arkane”, Explains the studio. “We will use this extra time to achieve our goal of creating a fun, stylish and breathtaking gaming experience. We apologize for the delay and thank you all for your passion and enthusiasm. It’s the fuel that fuels our creativity and hard work.”

Delays are piling up
Deathloop therefore joins a long list of games delayed (in part) because of the health crisis, like The Lords of the Rings : Gollum; Hogwarts Legacy; New World, Gotham Knights ou encore Gran Turismo 7.

As a reminder, in Deathloop, the player plays Colt, an assassin stuck in a time loop. To escape, he will have to attack eight targets in order to break this loop. But with each failed mission or each death, the loop starts again. Obviously, it will be more complicated than expected, because a certain Julianna Blake will be present on the island of Blackreef by your side to prevent you from escaping. It will therefore be necessary to consider the loop as an asset rather than a disadvantage. Especially since each restart, you keep your weapons and skills acquired in the previous loops.
