It will be a little longer before Marvel’s Midnight Sun saw the light of day. Originally slated for a March 2022 launch, the Firaxis strategy game will now be released sometime in publisher 2K’s current fiscal year, which ends in March 2023.
“We have made the decision to delay the release of Marvel’s Midnight Sun to ensure the teams at Firaxis Games and 2K provide the best possible experience for our fans,” the game publisher said in a press release ahead of Take-Two’s quarterly earnings in August Call on the 8th.
“The game will be available on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 later this fiscal year.” As such, expect a new release date anywhere between November 2023 and the end of March 2023 Landing (most likely, to be honest, the latter of the spectrum).
In addition to being pushed back to the previous October 7 release date, it sounds like Marvel’s Midnight Sun last-gen and Switch versions are also in trouble. Per 2K’s statement that “Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions will be available at a later date.” Those versions of the game now just have a “pending” release date on official Firaxis marketing documents, suggesting they’ve been put on hold while everyone Both are working to make sure the current version of the game goes live with snuff.
If you want to learn more about the game, it’s a tactical role-playing game set in the Marvel Universe that puts you in a co-op and co-op with various heroes from the X-Men, Avengers, Fugitives, and more. Live while fending off the demonic forces of the underworld, and more. You play as the Hunter, a customizable character who can take on a variety of combat roles such as damage, support, control, the ability to mitigate incoming damage, or any combination of each.
The game revolves around a “card” system that has caused a lot of controversy among the fanbase, with many arguing that it makes the game seem less like 4X strategy and more like a free-to-play game. Despite initial impressions, the game is a full-price AAA project – and Firaxis seems to have struggled with initial impressions since the game’s August 2021 release.
