The newest entry in the long-running Digimon series, Digimon Survive gets delayed into 2022. Coming from Bandai Namco and Developer Witchcraft. The game had already seen a delay from its original 2020 release date into 2021. However, that seems to have changed following the latest financial report from Toei Animation. Here is the original message from producer Kazumasa Habu on the delay previously:
The Digimon Survive team would like to extend our thanks to fans from around the world for their support during development, especially in these difficult times. We had originally planned to launch Digimon Survive in 2020, but current world events have shifted our development timing and we have made the difficult decision to push Digimon Survive‘s launch to 2021.
We thank you all for your continued patience as we work to create a fun and engaging tactical RPG game along with a memorable story for Digimon fans! We’ll share some exciting updates for Digimon Survive in spring 2021, so please stay tuned for more information.
