Weird West delayed to March 31, 2022
Devolver Digital and WolfEye Studios have announced that Weird West has been delayed to March 31, 2022, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam). The isometric action RPG / immersive sim was originally set to launch on January 11.
In a video and written message, shown below, WolfEye Studio and creative director Raf Colantonio state that early feedback from beta testers show some unintended consequences from the game's immersive sim design, so a little bit more time is needed to deliver the best experience as possible.

Devolver Digital and WolfEye Studios today announced that in order to make Weird West the most immersive and well, weird, journey through the west as possible, the game will now be launching across PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on March 31, 2022.
Weird West is an impressively deep mix of action RPG and immersive sim elements built on the WolfEye team's experience with Dishonored and Prey. Early feedback is fantastic but, as is the case with any immersive sim, there are a lot of variables that can lead to unintended consequences. More time is needed to deliver an experience that the community expects from WolfEye and Devolver. The team understands that this might be a disappointment to folks, but want to ensure that the game they've worked on for years is launched in the best form possible.
