Arkane Lyon‘s retro-futuristic first person shooter Deathloop will miss its Holiday 2020 release window, launching on Q2 2021 instead.
The developers have stated that the challenges of working from home (a by-product of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic) have affected their ability to deliver a game of the caliber they are working on in the time frame they’d originally set.
DEATHLOOP is an innovative first person shooter launching exclusively for PlayStation 5 and PC from Arkane Lyon, the award-winning studio behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored franchise.
The island of Blackreef. For most of its inhabitants, it’s a paradise. But for Colt, it’s an inescapable prison. Thanks to a mysterious timeloop, he’s reliving the same day, over and over, trying to find a way to break the endless cycle he’s trapped in. As Colt, you’ll have to take out eight targets – including your arch-nemesis Julianna Blake – if you ever want to escape. But remember: It’s a timeloop, so if at first you don’t succeed… die, die again.
