To update [Sat 4th Jun, 2022 01:55 BST]: Games journalist Tom Henderson says a reveal, or at least a “re-reveal” for Marvel’s Midnight Suns could happen very soon.
The game is expected to show up at Summer Game Fest and is rumored to be releasing this October and is believed to get three different versions – Enhanced, Legendary and Standard. It is also expected that there will be premium skins.
To update [Thu 5th May, 2022 02:25 BST]: After being delayed in November last year, this game has now been rated by the Australian Classification Board.
It received an “M” for the “Adult” rating and includes “adult themes and supernatural violence” as well as in-game purchases. It’s at least a sign that it’s still on track for a second-half release.
If we hear any news regarding a release date, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Original story [Thu 4th Nov, 2021 05:30 GMT]: The delays don’t stop now! In connection to Shovel Knight Dig2K and Firaxis Games have confirmed their tactical RPG Marvel’s Midnight Sun will no longer arrive in March 2022.
Instead, it has now been postponed to the second half of the year. Whenever it arrives, it will be released on multiple platforms including Nintendo Switch. The “tough decision” was made to ensure that this “dream project” could be the best possible game for the team when it releases.
Below is the full update courtesy of the development team:
On behalf of Firaxis Games, thank you for letting us know how excited you are Marvel’s Midnight Sun. We’ve been thrilled to see your reactions to everything from our announcement of the game to the unveiling of our card-based tactical combat. Marvel’s Midnight Sun is a true dream project for the team and we cannot express what an honor it is to create something new in the Marvel Universe.
We have decided to share that we have made the very difficult decision to move our launch window to the second half of 2022. We know many fans were looking forward to playing the game originally next spring, and we didn’t make that decision lightly. We decided to push our release forward because we need more time to make the best game possible. We believe in our creative vision for Marvel’s Midnight Sun and aim to live up to it by delivering an unforgettable adventure set in the supernatural side of Marvel. These extra months will be used to add more story, cinematics, and general polish, and will help us make our vision a reality.
Thank you for your understanding – you are the best fans in the world.
—Jake Solomon, Creative Director and Garth DeAngelis, Senior Franchise Producer
