Kena: Bridge Of Spirits has been delayed to September

Gorgeous forest adventure Kena: Bridge Of Spirits has been delayed again, moving from an August release date into September. This is the second time Kena has been delayed – originally it was supposed to come out in 2020. Alas, as with many games last year, the pandemic made sure that didn’t happen. Thankfully, this new delay isn’t a huge wait though, and the developers at Ember Labs say they just need more time to polish the game. Read more

Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time Remake delayed to 2022

Apparently something has gone wrong with time, because Ubisoft have confirmed that the Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake is now due in 2022. Considering the remake of the pleasing time-rewinding stab-o-platfomer was supposedly three months away from launch when they announced it in 2020, yeesh, someone at Ubi must have dropped their magical hourglass. So no, they won’t be showing it at their E3 showcase this week either. Read more

Arkane’s Deathloop delayed into September

Six weeks before they were due to release Deathloop, Arkane have announced they’re delaying the timeloop FPS by four months. Previously expected on the 21st of May, it’s now pushed back to September 14th. Sounds like the usual reasons: this past year (and counting) presented unusual challenges, and they want more time to make it good. Which is all perfectly fair. I’ll still be here, happily waiting for a new game from the studio which brought us Dishonored and Prey. Read more
