PS5 exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo delayed until 2022

This spooky game needs a little more cooking time

Bethesda’s spooky PlayStation 5 exclusive, Ghostwire: Tokyo, has been delayed until early 2022 to give Tango Gameworks “the time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life.”

The first-person action-adventure game, which pits players against a series of spirits haunting Tokyo, was due to be released on PS5 and PC at some point this year. However, fans haven’t seen much of the game since its announcement at E3 2019, and it’s now been confirmed we won’t be getting our hands on it until 2022 at least.

“We’ve made the decision to delay the launch of Ghostwire: Tokyo to early 2022,” Tango Gameworks says in a statement, which you can read in full below. “We want to get the game in your hands as soon as possible so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we’ve been hard at work building. At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango.”

While this might be frustrating for some fans – especially those on Xbox who will have to wait even longer to pick up the game – Tango is clearly taking development seriously and wants to deliver the best possible experience for all.

Fortunately, it doesn’t sound like we’ve got to wait too long for an update either, with Tango noting we’ll see more “in the coming months.”
