Housemarque’s PS5 exclusive could be out as early as next year.
Sony announced a surprisingly large amount of PS5 exclusives at their reveal event back in June, and one of them, which caught the eye of many, was Returnal. Developed by Housemarque with Sony’s full backing as a PS5 exclusive, the sci-fi shooter’s weird premise has piqued the interest of quite a few people- and it seems it might be out as early as next year.
As spotted by @bogorad222 on Twitter, a profile on LinkedIn may have spilled the beans on the game’s intended launch window. Laura Glibert, who is a game user researcher who worked at PlayStation until 2019, has Returnal listed under the games she’s worked on, and mentioned a 2021 launch window alongside it.
Of course, given the fact that Gilbert hasn’t been at PlayStation since 2019, it’s entirely possible that plans may have changed in the time since then. But if Returnal has been in development for that long, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the game launching in 2021.
Either way, it’s all up in the air for now, so don’t take this as confirmation of any sort. We’ll keep you updated as (or if) this story develops, so stay tuned.
Unsure if old.
