Originally set to debut in March of 2022, Firaxis’ Marvel’s Midnight Suns has now been delayed to the second half of 2022. “We decided to push our launch because we need more time to make this the best game possible,” Creative Director Jake Solomon and Senior Franchise Producer Garth DeAngelis said on twitter.
“These extra months will be used to add more story, cinematic and overall polish and will be essential in helping us make our vision a reality,” they wrote. The game was previously stated to be somewhere between 40-60 hours long. Hopefully the developers can put more characters on the list of additions to the game to really expand the roster of heroes from the Marvel universe.
Midnight Suns will be a tactical RPG with a turn-based combat system, much like the developer’s previous XCOM games. During combat encounters, random abilities will be doled out to the heroes for them to use on enemies. Role-playing is also an important element of the game and players will have the opportunity to socialize with and get to know the Marvel heroes.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns, barring any more delays, will arrive late 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. 2022 is going to be a huge year for superhero gaming with Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League also due out in 2022. Until then, we have Guardians of the Galaxy to enjoy, which is shaping up to be a major Game of the Year contender.
