One of the most fascinating titles for the next generation consoles we’ve seen so far is Deathloop. A shooter from Arkane Studios, it sees an assassin stuck in a time loop tied to the same day as he hunts multiple targets, while also being hunted by an equally deadly assassin out to kill only him. It looked to be a pretty interesting launch title for Sony’s PS5, but unfortunately couldn’t quite make it and was delayed. Alongside that delay, it seems we also now know how long it’ll be a timed exclusive.
In a post from the publisher themselves, Bethesda, about the most recent trailer (which you can see here), it was noted at the bottom of the page that the game’s “console exclusivity is for a limited time. Not available on other consoles until one year after release date.” While we had known that the timed exclusives Sony snagged for the PS5 had a range of time frames, this is the first time we have seen it explicitly stated that Deathloop’s is for a year.
Deathloop is set to launch Q2 2021 for the PS5 as well as PC. Due to this delay, it seems the game will not hit an Xbox console until 2022 at the earliest.
