DELAYED | Outriders Video Game Will No Longer Be Released In January
A much-anticipated title by People Can Fly and Square Enix hit by the lasting 2020 curse
It might be how hectic things have been but I completely forgot about this title. How? Square Enix is one of my favorite if not THE favorite developer/publishing companies. That's pretty big. Also, there's the fact that they're tagged with People Can Fly, the team that brought you Jack Black as a badass guitar-wielding hero in Brutal Legend. If you haven't experienced that game, it's featured on the Xbox 360 it's on the Gamepass, your welcome. (Disclaimer: It didn't age that well)
If you were one of the people anxiously waiting for this title in February, you will have to wait till April 1st, just a couple of months later. Hopefully, no April Fools joke when the time comes.
A lot of companies are seeing the alternative to putting out unfinished games so this may be a shift in the industry. The motive is so that the company can fine-tune the game before release which obviously, we prefer.
Fortunately, a demo will be released in late February the 23rd. Then you'll be able to experience the single-player or cooperative gameplay first hand with a few prologue campaign missions with each of the four character classes.
Outriders will drop on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
