Due to COVID-19 and “the current schedule of other games on the market.”
It wasn’t that long ago that Bloober Team confirmed the release date for their next-gen horror title The Medium as December 10. However, taking recently to Twitter via the game’s official page, the developer confirmed that it has now been delayed.
The delay isn’t an awfully long one, and The Medium will launch about a month and a half after its previous release date, on January 28, 2021. In its message, Bloober Team says that this decision has been made due to the COVID-19 situation in Poland, as well as “the current schedule of other games on the market.”
Though they have named no specific games, it’s likely that the latter is referring to Cyberpunk 2077, which was recently delayed to December 10, which is the same day The Medium was supposed to launch. Recently, Rockfish Games delayed the early access launch of Everspace 2 as well, explicitly saying that they did so to avoid clashing with Cyberpunk 2077’s launch (and this isn’t the first time they’ve done that either).
When The Medium launches, it will be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
