Forspoken Delayed by Almost 5 Months
Developer Luminous Productions has rescheduled open-world action RPG Forspoken from May 25 to October 11.
In a Twitter statement, the development team stated that the delay would allow them to “focus all of our efforts on polishing the game.” The game only received its original release date last December.

The PS5 and PC game was announced in 2020 and has been relatively quiet ever since. In a preview last year, we said that the game, which is being developed primarily by the developers of Final Fantasy 15, has an “out-of-the-box take on the JRPG formula” and “feels more like an open-world RPG in the vein of Assassin’s Creed and The Witcher than anything else.” that I’ve seen from Square Enix before.”
The team also has high hopes for their surprise project, from aiming for “the highest quality visuals” in an open-world game to bringing in Rogue One writer Gary Whitta and Uncharted creator Amy Hennig at various stages of the development process.
Starring Frey, a young woman transported from present-day New York City to a fantasy realm called Atia, the game will focus on magic, parkour, and high-speed action. Despite the delay, the game still has several editions available for pre-order.
