The exact release date is currently to be determined. As a consequence of this, the game will no longer be available to play at this year’s Gamescom event.

Bandai Namco’s Vice-President of Marketing and Digital, Hervé Hoerdt, stated that this delay is to “further refine its gameplay in an effort to exceed the expectations fans already have of the title.” It was first shown off during Microsoft’s E3 2017 conference. Fans have been clamoring for this title since its original unveiling. Now, September is looking to be a bit less stacked. Gamers will have to tide themselves over with the releases of Spider-Man, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Destiny 2: Forsaken, or even the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy. Hopefully, Bandai Namco can give fans a firm release date in the coming weeks. Bandai Namco’s next major game to launch is Soulcalibur VI. This will be the franchise’s first release since 2012. Many favorite characters and stages return, alongside Geralt from The Witcher. It is planned to release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 19.
