[Update]: It took a while, but Digimon Survive has now finally been released!

This entire year has been a bit of a mess, so it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to hear that yet another game has now been delayed. This time around we're talking about the strategy-focused RPG Digimon Survive. Instead of launching in late 2020 as previously announced, it has now been pushed back until 2021, with no exact release date announced just yet.

"The Digimon Survive team would like to extend our thanks to fans from around the world for their support during development, especially in these difficult times," reads the brief developer update. "We had originally planned to launch Digimon Survive in 2020 but current world events have shifted our development timing and we have made the difficult decision to push Digimon Survive's launch to 2021."

"We thank you all for your continued patience as we work to create a fun and engaging tactical RPG game along with a memorable story for Digimon fans! We will share some exciting updates for Digimon Survive in Spring 2021, so please stay tuned for more information."

Considering that the recent Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth ended up being pretty darn good, I must admit I have high expectations for Digimon Survive. So here's to hoping these extra few months will give the developers the time they need to get everything polished up to a mirror sheen!

Once the new release date gets announced I'll make sure to let you know, but until then you can learn a little bit more about Digimon Survive over at the official website.
