Ghostwire: Tokyo is delayed in early 2022 to ‘protect the health’ of those working on the game.
Announced on Twitter thanks to Tango Gameworks fans for their patience, and promised to show more of the supernatural action game in the coming months. “Our new release window will give us time to bring the Ghostwire world to life as we have always envisioned it,” the statement said.

Although no specific justification was given for the delay, protecting employees̵
Ghostwire: Tokyo was previously set to launch for PS5 and PC this year. It’s the latest game from legendary director Shinji Mikami and his Tango Gameworks studio (The Evil Within), and although it includes horror motifs, it’s more of an action-adventure game.
Despite Xbox acquiring Tango Gameworks’ parent company, ZeniMax Media, PS5 exclusivity agreements will be honored for both Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop. However, Deathloop’s exclusivity will eventually wear off, and you can expect Ghostwire: Tokyo to see a similar deal. Microsoft has not yet commented on when Xbox versions of the games may arrive.
It is far from the only game that has been delayed this year, and it is a trend that will continue. Ghostwire is not even the first game delayed Today, with Just Cause Mobile also an unexpected push into 2022.
