GhostWire: Tokyo delayed into early 2022

Posted on July 14, 2021

Developer Tango Gameworks have announced via Twitter that their upcoming release, GhostWire: Tokyo, won’t make its projected 2021 release and will instead get pushed back into early next year.

The twisted horror game set in the streets of Tokyo is developed by the team known for The Evil Within and its sequel. We first saw GhostWire: Tokyo back at E3 2019 where we were instantly intrigued by its atmospheric and creepy vibes.

It’s a shame to see the game delayed but it also isn’t entirely surprising. The game’s absence at E3 2021 was fairly notable and there were definitely some concerns it wouldn’t make its projected release. GhostWire: Tokyo feels like it’s a game that still needs a bit more explaining. Every time we see it feels like a bit of a different product. Is it a full-on horror game? Is it an action game with a creepy aesthetic? We’re not quite sure yet, so hopefully this delay will give the development team more time to showcase the title and set expectations.

GhostWire: Tokyo will release in early 2022 to PC and PS5 as a timed console exclusive.
