Marvel’s Iron Man for PlayStation VR delayed again
Camouflaj’s game now set to release in May
The release date for Marvel’s Iron Man VR has been delayed for a second time.
Originally set for release last year before being delayed to February 2020, the PlayStation VR game will now launch on May 15.
The title has been in development for over three years at Seattle-based Camouflaj, the studio behind stealth thriller République.
“In order to deliver on our vision and meet the high expectations of our amazing community, we’ve made the difficult decision to move Marvel’s Iron Man VR to a May 15, 2020 release,” it tweeted on Friday.
“We truly appreciate your patience and understanding. You’ll be hearing from us again soon!”
The game sees Iron Man facing off against Ghost, a Marvel villain portrayed by Hannah John-Kamen in 2018 movie Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Lead writer Brendan Murphy told the PlayStation Blog: “Ghost is a great foil for Tony Stark—she not only holds a grudge against our hero, but holds a mirror up to him.
“As a witness to the damage caused by Stark-made weapons years earlier, Ghost’s fight against Iron Man is both ideological and personal. Because of Ghost, our complex and fascinating hero must reconcile his troubled past, both on and off the battlefield.”
Sony said this month that PlayStation VR sales have topped five million units since launching in October 2016.
Several high-profile games have been delayed this week including Marvel’s Avengers, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Cyberpunk 2077.
