Deathloop has been delayed again, with Arkane’s timed PS5 console excluding moving from the previous May 21 release date to the fall release September 14. The news marks the second major delay Deathloop, which was originally supposed to be out in the high season 2020 along with the recently released PS5.
As with the previous delay, Arkane’s studio in Lyon once again cites COVID-19-related delays, with increasing difficulty in developing as it works to ensure “the health and safety of everyone at Arkane.”

As a next-generation exclusive title, Deathloop is only set to be released on PlayStation 5 (for a one-year exclusivity period) and PC – despite the fact that publisher Bethesda is now owned by Microsoft. Told Xbox studio head Phil Spencer Bloomberg back in september that it will still hold the timed exclusivity for both Deathloop and GhostWire: Tokyo. That means, with the current delay, Xbox owners will have to wait even longer before heading to Blackreef.
