On May 13, a South Korean game website revealed the rating for Marvel's Midnight Suns, increasing speculation for an upcoming release date.

As a tactical and strategy RPG filled with fan-favorite characters, Marvel's Midnight Suns has been a game to watch since it was announced. It was reportedly delayed from March 2022 to the latter half of 2022, which means that players everywhere are awaiting a release date.

Additionally, the Marvel's Midnight Suns Twitter account has been inactive since January 2022, when they liked a few Tweets on the platform. Due to the lack of announcements and engagement, it would make sense for them to reveal pertinent information to keep fans engaged.

Push Square is anticipating that Marvel's Midnight Suns will release more information during the Summer Games Fest, due to its newly appointed rating. This rating consists of suggesting this game for those who are at least 15 years or older.

Due to its darker content (compared to Disney's Marvel franchise), many fans will see a difference in their favorite characters such as Iron Man and Wolverine. Marvel's Midnight Suns appeals to those who want to "explore the darker side of Marvel."

Marvel's Midnight Suns allow players to engage with the world as The Hunter, who is fully customizable through both outfits and abilities. From the developers behind the XCOM series, players can expect to engage with strategy and battle others throughout this process.

There is also a team-building aspect within the game, as the Midnight Suns and various Marvel heroes like the X-Men and the Avengers are willing to help. Every team can be different depending on what the player values within their own game. You can also strengthen your allyship with other heroes off of the battlefield. Even though it is known to be "darker" than what one would expect, there are also friendly additions to immerse players into the game.

Marvel's Midnight Suns is sure to attract players that enjoy the characters but also those who just thoroughly enjoy strategy RPGs. This game will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

UPDATE 8/8/2022

Based on a report from IGN, in an earning's call, Take-Two revealed the game was delayed until "later this fiscal year," which means sometime before March 2023. The last projected release date was October of 2022, so this most likely means a release date of early 2023.
