Tango Gameworks has shared an update on the PS5 exclusive Ghostwire Tokyo confirming that the game’s release has been pushed to early 2022.
Ghostwire Tokyo has been missing in action since the game was first shown during E3 2019. Back then, it was supposed to be directed by Ikumi Nakamura who left Tango Gameworks shortly afterward. After the departure of Nakamura, the game disappeared into a development hell despite a 2021 release window. It never received proper media coverage and follow-up until today, when an official update was shared.
On the Twitter account of Ghostwire Tokyo, the developers have shared a message that confirms that the game is now delayed to early 2022.
We’ve made the decision to delay the launch of Ghostwire: Tokyo to early 2022.
We want to get the game in your hands as soon as possible so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we’ve been hard at work building. At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release window will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life as we’ve always envisioned it.
Thank you for being patient as we work to bring you an experience unlike anything else we’ve ever made. We can’t wait to show you more in the coming months.
Ghostwire Tokyo along with Deathloop was one of the PS5 exclusive games that were published by Bethesda Softworks. After their acquisition by Microsoft, they still honored the exclusivity contract however based on the Deathloop exclusivity window, this might expire after a year.
