Digimon Survive has been delayed to 2021. Bandai Namco has shared a statement from the producer explaining the reason for this delay.
Digimon Survive was originally set to launch for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in 2019. It was then delayed to 2020, however, it appears due to the on-going impact of COVID-19, the game can’t possibly meet its new release window and has been pushed further to 2021.
Here is the message shared by the producer of the game, Kazumasa Habu, which confirms the delay. There is no announcement of a possible next-generation release considering PS5 and Xbox Series X are launching this Holiday.
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 will share some exciting updates for Digimon Survive in Spring 2021, so please stay tuned for more information.
– Kazumasa Habu, Producer of Digimon Survive
The game will be now out in 2021 with the first major update planned for Spring 2021. The confirmed platforms so far are PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
