I swear I’ve written this before, but this past year has definitely been the “year of the game delays” ™. Of course, with the current ongoing pandemic sending developers to work from home, delays were inevitable. In this year alone, I have counted 14 articles on lag in games. The grass is green, the sky is blue, and that game you are waiting for was rejected. Today, that game is Deathloop, which has been delayed until September 14.

Now delayed beyond its originally scheduled release for May 21 Deathloop it will fall in September just as summer ends. The developer, Arkane Lyon, announced the news early today via video message and Twitter post. Arkane apologized for the “long wait” and explained that the delay is necessary for the “health and safety” of the study team. While disappointing, it prevents creaking and ensures the well-being of DeathloopDevelopers is certainly more important than releasing the game next month. Take all the time you need.

“At Arkane, we have a strong vision of Deathloop, and we don’t want to commit to that, “said Dinga Bakaba, Deathloop game director, in a video message today. “But we must also do everything we can to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the study.”

The cycle of time is forever, but the wait will not be

Four months is a negligible amount for a game like Deathloop. Since its unveiling, we have been impressed by its Bond-esque style and music. In the game, you play as Colt, who is trapped in some kind of a Groundhog Day nightmare scenario, but with killers. Deathloop is an Arkane game from start to finish, combining first-person shooter with unique superhuman abilities. Telekinesis, blinking motion, and stealth are just a few of the ingredients in Arkane’s stew, and Deathloop it seems they have submerged it.

Of course, Deathloop seems more action oriented than Dishonor – an Arkane classic. Pistols, shotguns and machine guns are among many of the noisemakers included in the game.

Deathloop will be available for PC on September 14.
