Square Enix and People Can Fly have announced that their upcoming game Outriders has been delayed. The game was scheduled for release on February 2, but has now been pushed back until April 1.
You can view a message from the developers down below:
Happy New Year. We believe it’s important that players get to experience a new IP like Outriders before release, so that you can decide for yourselves whether the game is something you wish to pre-order, purchase or play.
For this reason we’re excited to announce that on February 25, 2021 we will be publishing a free demo, giving everyone the chance to play the first few hours of the game with all four classes—in both single-player and co-op—along with seamless migration of your character and progress to the full game.
Speaking of which, we have decided to move the release date of Outriders to April 1, 2021 (no joke!). We will spend this extra time fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch.
Thanks for hanging tight a little longer—we appreciate your patience!
—The Outriders Team
