It might not be a huge AAA blockbuster game, but Kena: Bridge of Spirits has looked like one of the most exciting PS5 launch titles since the moment it was revealed back in June. Quite a few have been excited to get their hands on the game this Holiday- sadly, it seems like it’s going be a slightly longer wait than expected.
Developer Ember Lab recently took to Twitter via the game’s official account and confirmed that Kena: Bridge of Spirits has been delayed to Q1 2021. The developer says that transitioning to working from home due to COVID-19 has caused development to slow down more than they’d expected, and so, “for the best of the game and the well-being of the team”, they’ve made the decision to delay its release.
“We will use this time to give the game the polish it deserves and deliver an experience that meets our vision and your expectations,” Ember Lab writes in its statement. You can read it in full below.
When it does release, Kena: Bridge of Spirits will be available on PS4, PS5, and PC. It will support free next-gen upgrades for those who get it on PS4.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits isn’t the first PS5 launch title to be delayed. Less than a month ago, Arkane and Bethesda announced that Deathloop’s launch had also been pushed back into Q2 2021.
