[Update]: Arkane has now pinned Deathloop for a May 25, 2021 release date.

Deathloop was originally supposed to arrive for PC and PlayStation 5 at some point during the 2020 holiday season, but unfortunately it has now been delayed. As you might imagine, the pandemic has thrown a big ol' wrench into its development, and so Deathloop has now been pushed back until the second quarter of 2021.

"The health and safety of everyone at Arkane Lyon remains our top priority," reads the brief update. "As we've adjusted to work-from-home, we found that delivering this new and exciting experience, at the polish and quality level that defines both an Arkane game and a true next-gen experience, is taking longer than normal."

"This extra time will allow our team to bring Deathloop's world to life with as much character and fun as you've come to expect from our team. While we know this is the right decision for Deathloop, we share your disappointment, and apologize for making you wait even longer."

As for what exactly you can expect to see once Deathloop finally arrives, that you can check out through the original gameplay trailer. It's not an overly lengthy one, but it'll clue you in quite nicely on just what Deathloop is trying to accomplish. Have a peek:
