Outriders' release date is set for April 1, 2021, but that wasn't always the case. The science fiction third-person RPG shooter from developer People Can Fly and publisher Square Enix had its release delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it appears to be on track now.

Outriders Release Date: When Does Outriders Come Out?

People Can Fly started development on Outriders in 2015, and over the course of development expanded its headcount from 40 employees to 200. Square Enix announced it would publish the next game from People Can Fly in 2018, before the game's official reveal. That wouldn't arrive until E3 2019, when the game's initial release window of the 2020 holiday season was set.

After COVID-19 upset the game's development time, People Can Fly pushed release to February 2021. That, too, proved insufficient, forcing a second delay to April 1. When Outriders finally launches that day, it'll hit Stadia, Windows, PlayStation 4, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
