The delay meant that an Xbox console version almost certainly won’t release before 2023. Microsoft acquired Tango’s parent Bethesda last year and is honouring PlayStation‘s exclusivity agreements for Ghostwire, as it did for Arkane’s Deathloop.
“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,” Tango said in a statement last summer.
“At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release window will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life as we’ve always envisioned it.”
