Bloober Team has officially delayed upcoming dual-sided psychological horror, The Medium.
Originally slated for release 10th December, The Medium will now be released 28th January instead.
Bloober took to Twitter to make the announcement;
“After much careful thought and consideration, today we have made the difficult decision to delay […] The Medium.
It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but one made due to the Covid-19 situation in Poland, as well as the current schedule of other current games on the market. Bloober team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious, fear-inducing experience to date”.
You’ll notice one key part of that statement; “current schedule of other games on the market”. Yep, Cyberpunk‘s delay has struck again.
Bloober carries on, stating;
“The additional development time will allow us to add further polish, ensuring we deliver our innovative, genre-pushing vision of interactive psychological horror. Rest assured, the delay will not stop us sharing information with you, and you can expect us to unravel a few more layers of The Medium‘s great mystery soon”.
It’s another blow for the Xbox Series X launch as The Medium was slated to be one of the console’s prime launch titles. However, when you consider what could have happened had Bloober not pushed the game back, it’s probably for the best.
