Sources have suggested that Marvel’s Midnight Suns will receive some form of huge revamp following its reveal that caused fan controversy in August 2021. The game was intended to release in March 2022, but Firaxis Games announced the game will be delayed until the second half of 2022 in November, just three months after its reveal.
Firaxis’ statement from Creative Director Jake Solomon and senior franchise producer Garth DeAngelis claimed the delay was because the team needed “more time to make the best game possible.” The delay would allow the team to “add more story, cinematics and overall polish,” it was said.
It’s understood that a new revamped trailer and release date for the game will be revealed next month, likely during Summer Games Fest which begins on June 9th. It’s not clear what the “revamping” of the game will be, but it’s likely to address fan concerns about the game’s random game mechanic.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns had received an age rating in South Korea nearly two weeks ago on May 13th, suggesting that the game could be released during the summer. In addition, the game also received a “mature” rating in Australia, too.
The game is slated to be a tactical role-playing game, featuring at least 12 Marvel characters on launch. Players will be able to create their own superhero too, named “The Hunter” with a choice of over 40 different superpowers.
It’s expected that the game will release on the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, but Firaxis Games are yet to confirm these details.
