It looks like Digimon fans will have to deal with another long wait for Digimon Survive.
Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Witchcraft have delayed the RPG’s release on all platforms (including Nintendo Switch) to 2021. The game’s producer shared a message to fans explaining this decision, citing “current world events” as the reason for the delay:
“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
