Smilegate Entertainment has announced a delay for Xbox console exclusive shooter CrossfireX.
The game was originally supposed to launch this year for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, but it will now arrive in 2021.
The online component of the tactical shooter is in development at Smilegate, while CrossfireX’s campaign is being developed by Control studio Remedy.
“After much deliberation, and in consideration of the challenges faced by the Smilegate development team due to Covid-19, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of CrossfireX to 2021,” Smilegate said on Thursday.
“Moving our release will allow us to deliver the Crossfire experience on console our team set out to create. We’’ll have more to share in the future.”
An Xbox One CrossfireX beta was held in June, giving participants early access to several maps and modes featured in the online game.
CrossfireX was originally announced as “coming first to console”, suggesting a PC release could also be on the cards for the game, which is being published by Microsoft.
Delays for multiple projects have been announced in recent weeks including Cyberpunk 2077, The Medium, Destruction All Stars, Kerbal Space Program 2, Twelve Minutes, Last Stop and The Artful Escape.
