Bandai Namco re-confirms Digimon Survive's delay to 2022
Bandai Namco has confirmed that Digimon Survive will be delayed to 2022.
Toei Animation, co-owner of the Digimon IP, had already stated that the upcoming strategy RPG was delayed to 2022 during a financial results presentation in July 2021, but now Bandai Namco has officially announced the delay on its own channels. The publisher simply states that more time is needed for development.
The statement from producer Kazumasa Habu can be seen below, both in image and text form.
To Digimon fans patiently awaiting Digimon Survive:
First of all, we'd like to thank you for your continued patience and support for Digimon Survive. Our original goal was to launch Digimon Survive in 2021. However, due to the need to allocate more time to development, it is necessary to move the game's release date to 2022. While this decision hasn't been an easy one, we want to make sure we use this extra time to enhance the quality of the game.
The entire development team is working as hard as we can on the game, and we kindly ask for your patience. We look forward to sharing more news and updates about Digimon Survive with you all, soon. Thank you again for your continued support.
- Kazumasa Habu, Producer of Digimon Survive
It's been a quiet few years now for Digimon Survive. It was officially delayed to 2021 in October 2020, and we have not heard anything significant about the game otherwise since April 2020, when Bandai Namco finalized the main character roster with the additions of Kaito and Miu Shinonome. We'll have to wait a little bit longer, looks like.
Digimon Survive is set to release for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
