Arrival of PlayStation 5 exclusive Returnal pushed back a smidge
As we’re all well aware of by now, developing games under current circumstances isn’t easy, and numerous projects have been hit with release delays. Today, another release has been added to the pile of titles that have been pushed back.
This time, it’s developer Housemarque’s Returnal, the new PlayStation 5 exclusive third-person sci-fi horror shooter. The news came down today through the official PlayStation Twitter account—but thankfully, it’s only a short delay.
As someone who is clearly a fan of Housemarque’s work, as evident in my reviews for some of their previous titles like Nex Machina and Resogun, I say give the team whatever time they need.
