The Medium Delayed Due To COVID-19
The Medium has been delayed to January 28, 2021 due to COVID-19 and possibly the new release date of Cyberpunk 2077.
The game would first be released on the Xbox Series X, S and PC on December 10th. However, announced on Twitter, postponement lowered to production issues related to COVID-19 and, “the current schedule of other titles on the market”. This probably means Cyberpunk 2077, which has been postponed to December 10th.
It isn’t the first game that delayed because of the CD Project Red’s RPG game Cyberpunk 2077. We have seen that Everspace 2 and the Path of Exile end-game expansion shift dates before The Medium.
This will be a hard blow for the Xbox Series, where The Medium is one of the premier launch titles. It might sell a little better, except for Cyberpunk’s shadow.
Statement from Developer Bloober Team, “It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but one made due to the current state of the COVID-19 in Poland, as well as the current schedule of other games on the market. Bloober Team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious, fear-inducing experience to date. The additional development time will allow us to add further polish. Ensuring we deliver our innovative, genre-pushing vision of interactive psychological horror.”
