Bugsnax's release date has yet to be nailed down, but the window developer Young Horses provided for its release is slowly approaching, suggesting the game isn't far off. Here's what we know so far about when players will be able to get their hands on Bugsnax.

Bugsnax Release Date: When Will Bugsnax Be Released?

Young Horses unveiled Bugsnax with a trailer that debuted during Sony's June PlayStation 5 games showcase. The game's overwhelmingly cute aesthetic helped it stand out amid the many games on display, and it already boasts a substantial amount of excitement about its upcoming release.

So far, Young Horses has only said the game is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2020, when it will hit PS4, PS5 and PC. No specific date is set.

When the game does go live, players will take on the role of a newspaper reporter in search of disgraced explorer Elizabert Megafig on Snaktooth Island. Along the way, they'll encounter plenty of Bugsnax, creatures that are half bug and half snack.
