Square Enix and People Can Fly have just revealed that Outriders will miss its Holiday 2020 release window, launching on February 2nd, 2021 instead.
The developers have stated that this delay will allow them to include full cross-play support between PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia, which is a great thing for the longevity of the game in my opinion.
We’re very happy to announce that we can offer full cross-play support and a free next-gen upgrade plan for OUTRIDERS players. The great thing about this system is that even if you’re not picking up your PS5 or XSX quite yet, we’ve got you covered and there’s no need to wait. If you buy the current-gen version of OUTRIDERS, we’ll give you the next-gen version for free.Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios
We’re taking a little bit longer to ensure players have the best possible experience with OUTRIDERS, we’re also including new features like Cross-Play which will make our game much more accessible on all platforms.Lee Singleton, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios
OUTRIDERS is a 1-3 player co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe.
As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across the hostile planet.
With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal.
Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, OUTRIDERS offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter developers in the industry – People Can Fly.
