Kena: Bridge of Spirits has been delayed once again, developer Ember Lab announced Wednesday. The game was scheduled to launch on August 24 and will instead launch on September 21 now. A statement from the developers said that the extra time spent working on the game will give the creators a chance to polish it up further. The planned launch pads for the game remain unchanged, so we’ll still see it launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via the Epic Games Store on the new release date.
The delay was announced on social media similar to how news of the first delay was shared in September 2020. It was supposed to launch last year initially, but then moved to 2021 before the August date was set. . The month-long delay isn’t nearly as bad as the previous one, but it’s still a hassle for those who were looking forward to playing the game next month.
