Given the circumstance that Arcane Lyon’s Deathloop was announced at E3 2019 last year during the Bethesda E3 Showcase, it was no questioning how excited fans were to learn that the game would be launching in 2020. Featuring first-look gameplay for the new time-restraining title, Bethesda pressed that the game would be a console exclusive to PlayStation 5 for the first months of the game releasing.
However, it wasn’t until August later this summer that developer Arkane Lyon told the game is facing restraints in releasing this year and needed to reschedule the arrival of Deathloop until Q1 2021 at the earliest – so fans will have to wait until at least spring for the game to properly release on the respectively listed platform.
Now according to a new listing on the PlayStation Store in New Zealand, Deathloop is suggested to release On May 21 next year. The domain offers both the Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition of the game and both are marked with the May launch date for the coming title.
“Every new loop is an opportunity to change things up. Use the knowledge you gain from each attempt to change up your playstyle, stealthily sneaking through levels or barreling into the fight, guns-blazing,” the overview reads from the PlayStation Store page. “In each loop you’ll discover new secrets, gather intel on your targets as well as the island of Blackreef, and expand your arsenal.
“Armed with a host of otherworldly abilities and savage weaponry, you’ll utilize every tool at your command to execute takedowns that are as striking as they are devastating. Customize your loadout wisely to survive this deadly game of hunter vs hunted.” For those that might recall, Arkane Lyon and more so Bethesda is now a subsidiary of Xbox Game Studios.
However, despite the enticing acquisition of Bethesda’s [aren’t company Zenimax Media, Microsoft explains that the timed exclusivity deals will remain. Xbox head Phil Spencer explained that the deal will be unaltered, however, coming projects following the agreement will be decided on a “case-to-case basis” determining f the game will be unique to the Xbox ecosystem or not.
