[Update #2]: Forspoken has now arrived with a free demo and an outrageous price tag.

[Update]: Square Enix has now detailed the PC system requirements and their expected performance for Forspoken.

It seems that after the incredibly rough launch of PlatinumGames' co-op action-RPG Babylon's Fall Square Enix has decided to play things safe with the upcoming action-adventure Forspoken. As such, instead of launching onto PC and PlayStation 5 this May 24th as previously announced, Forspoken has now been pushed back until October 11th.

"Our vision for this exciting new IP is to deliver a game world and hero that gamers across the globe will want to experience for years to come, so getting it right is extremely important to us," explains the brief update. "To that end, during the next few months we will focus all of our efforts on polishing the game and can't wait for you to experience Frey's journey this fall"

Considering how some of the footage released so far featured rather choppy performance, and that's putting it gently, I think this delay is for the best. So with a bit of luck, once Forspoken finally arrives this October it'll do so without the usual technical trouble that seems to follow pretty much every major game these days.

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once more information becomes available. Until then, I'll leave you with one of the original trailers. Enjoy!
