Stray release date was teased alongside the seemingly post-apocalyptic, AI run world of the game during Sony’s reveal event on June 11. Developed by Blue Twelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive, the game takes a unique twist on the action-adventure genre as gamers can play as a stray cat traversing a robot-populated city.
Set in a world where humanity’s last days are apparently long past, the third-person perspective gameplay will see players navigate the streets of the city, where robots suffer the same dregs of poverty and misfortune as their human ancestors did.
Described by Annapurna Interactive as a:
"...third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly, players will play as a stray cat, roaming surroundings high and low, defend against unforeseen threats and solve the mysteries of this unwelcoming place inhabited by nothing but unassuming droids and dangerous creatures.”
"Lost, alone and separated from family, players must untangle an ancient mystery to escape a long-forgotten cybercity and find the way home."
We expect to learn much more about this title including actual gameplay, as the announcement trailer was completely cinematic in nature.
Stray Release Date: When is it Coming?
Stray tentatively is slated for a 2021 release for the PlayStation 5. We’ll have to wait for more information from Sony and Blue Twelve Studio in regards to gameplay elements, storyline details, game history, and more. Gaining the perspective of a cat, complete with the change in perspective and scale that comes with it should be a welcome change of pace in the gaming world. The title looks to take full advantage of the PS5’s capabilities in order to create such a world and experience possible.
