Forspoken, a new action RPG developed by Luminous Productions and published by Square Enix, is now scheduled to release on Jan. 24, 2023. The studio took to Twitter to post an update on the game's development, saying, "As a result of ongoing discussions with key partners, we have made the strategic decision to move the launch date of Forspoken to January 24, 2023."
The game was originally set to release in May 2022, but it's release date was then moved to October 11 before once again being delayed. However, the studio have assured fans that the "game elements" are complete and that "development is in its final polishing phase."
The statement should serve to reassure fans that the project is still in good shape. Forspoken's previously intended October release date would have contended with a number of bug releases, including Overwatch 2, launching on Oct 4, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, releasing on Oct. 28.
In the Tweet, Luminous Productions and Square Enix announced that more information regarding Forspoken would be shared with fans this Summer: "Your excitement for the game inspires us every day and we cannot wait to share more about Forspoken with you later this Summer!"
Forspoken will release on Jan. 24, 2023 for PlayStation 5 and Windows PC.
