“We focus on protecting the health of everyone at Tango.”
PlayStation 5 time-exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo will now start “early 2022”, developer Tango Gameworks has announced.
The delay will allow the studio to complete the project while protecting the health of the studio’s staff, Tango said in a statement posted on Twitter today.
Ghostwire: Tokyo was due out for PS5 and PC this October, with a year-long console exclusivity before it hit Xbox – though Tango’s parent company Bethesda is now part of Microsoft.
“We want to get your hands on the game as soon as possible, so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we have worked hard on. At the same time, we are also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release Windows will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life just as we always imagined it to be.
“Thank you for your patience as we work to give you an experience that is different from anything we’ve ever done.

Tango is based in Tokyo, where this year’s Olympics are now taking place without a spectator as the country battles a new wave of Covid cases. That decision sparked fire because it was made just 10 days before the opening ceremony of the Games.
Today Pokémon Go postponed the launch of a new Pikachu designed to boost tourism in the country.
