The delay will also give a little extra time for polish.
It’s been quite the day for the last two big Sony releases for PS4 (or, at least, the last two that have been revealed as of now). We finally got a release date for when The Last of Us Part 2 will release after an indefinite delay, and now we know that Ghost of Tsushima will also get pushed back a month into July. Of that latter title, we’ve seen very little, considering how close it is, but that may change soon.
Taking to the game’s official Twitter account after the delay was announced, developers Sucker Punch said they were overcoming some challenges of now working remotely from home, while also noting they’re using the extra time they’ve now got on their hands to polish up bugs for the final release. They also dropped the snippet that gameplay details will be coming “very soon,” though did not give a solid date for when that will happen. Considering how little actual gameplay we have seen from the title, that will be welcome.
Ghost of Tsushima will release exclusively for PlayStation 4 on July 17th.
