Deathloop official artwork and logo

[Update #2]: Deathloop has now arrived and, outside of some early performance problems, it seems to be getting a pretty positive reception.

[Update]: Arkane has detailed the PC system requirements and advanced settings for Deathloop.

If you were itching to get your hands on Arkane's time-bending shooter Deathloop this May 21, I'm afraid I bring some bad news. Due to the pandemic messing things up and slowing development, Deathloop has now been pushed back until September 14, 2021.

"We're committed to quality and preserving our team's ambitions for Deathloop while ensuring the health and safety of everyone at Arkane," reads the brief update. "We'll be using this extra time to accomplish our goal: Create a fun, stylish and mind-bending player experience."

"We apologize for the extended wait and thank you all for your passion and excitement. It is the fuel that powers our creativity and our hard work. We can't wait to show you more Deathloop soon!"

While it's certainly annoying to watch Deathloop's release date get pushed back time and time again, it's hard to fault Arkane for it given the current circumstances. As such, I can only hope the extra development time will result in a highly polished experience as Deathloop really does seem like it has a great deal of potential.

Once we get a brand new gameplay preview, most likely closer to launch, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I'll leave you with one of the original trailers showing off just what Deathloop has to offer. Enjoy!
