Several of Sony’s upcoming games, including GhostWire: Tokyo and Project Athia have received new release windows.
The announcements were made during Sony’s CES 2021 showcase earlier today (January 12). While the showcase did not feature any new gameplay or game announcements, the PS5 segment of the showcase included a reel of upcoming launch dates.
The fine print on the reel notably revealed that GhostWire: Tokyo will release in October 2021, although an exact date was not announced. Stray will also release in October this year.
GhostWire: Tokyo, which is being developed by Bethesda, is an upcoming first-person action adventure game. The game will be exclusive to the PS5 for a year before it releases on other consoles. Despite Bethesda’s ongoing acquisition by Microsoft, the studio has announced that it will honour all announced PlayStation exclusives.
The reel also revealed that Capcom’s mysterious sci-fi title Pragmata, which was originally announced for a 2022 release, has now been pushed back to 2023. On the other hand, Square Enix’s Project Athia has now been given a January 2022 release window. Project Athia had previously only been described as “in development for PS5”, with no mention of a release window.
Kena: Bridge Of Spirits, which was delayed to 2021 in September last year, has now also received a March 2021 release window. The game was initially delayed because the transition to working from home caused “development to move slower” than its developer Ember Lab had hoped.
