Deathloop is one of the few, larger PlayStation 5 releases this year, but it would not be the only one on Sony’s next console. Now we know exactly when their solitude ends: September 14, 2022.
At Deathloop’s latest caravan, which first appeared on Sony’s “State of Play” broadcast on July 8, a short, easy-to-miss text at the end of the video officially revealed that Deathloop would only comfort the PS5 for one year. After September 14, 2022, the game may appear on other consoles. (Something to keep in mind: Deathloop has always been scheduled for release on PC at launch.) It’s hard to guess what “other consoles” mean in this context.
Deathloop is published by Bethesda and developed by Arkane, both of which are now owned by Xbox. Depending on how Microsoft handles first-team games, it is highly likely that soon after Deathloop’s contract expires we will be redirected to the Xbox Series X / S.
Announced for the first time at E3 2019, Deathloop is the next game from the infamous architects Arkane Studios. When it was first released, no forums were mentioned. But next year we learned that Deathloop and another PS5 game published in Bethesda, Ghostwire Tokyo, will be rescheduled. Well, the question was how long this window would last.
Things got even more serious when Microsoft ended its acquisition of Bethesda earlier this year. Xbox CEO Phil Spencer has confirmed that Microsoft and Xbox will honor all current Bethesda contracts with other companies. However, one of the special features of the PS5 was the special timed selection created by the Xbox studio. This even led to the official Xbox Twitter account triggering the PlayStation event yesterday. Strange times, people.
The loss of a special console is not always a big deal. But considering how small the next few games are, ultimately losing Deathloop (more than losing Godfall) is not good for Sony, which needs to convince people to spend money on a new machine. A good way to do what used to be good, new special games. But with big Sony titles like Horizon: Forbidden West and others coming to PS5 and PS4, it’s hard to make a big case of why anyone needs to buy a new console right now. (If you think you can get even one.)
Microsoft is undoubtedly doing the worst job in producing gen-gen hits, with the next Xbox games and not many coming soon. (One of the few, The Medium, will hit the PS5 in September.) Even the next big Halo is coming to the Xbox One over Series X / S. great. The Sonys on the other hand needs them more than ever as the indie devs news of the company continues to grow and many of the next games will be delayed.
Well, until you can easily buy any next-gen console, for most people none of this is important. And now that it is even impossible to buy gen-current equipment, such as the PS4 Pro, it seems that many people, not just Sony, will miss out on the special console games.
Earlier this week, Sony silently handed out gamers a look at what was going to happen on the PlayStation with a brief State of Play presentation. The presentation lasted about 30 minutes, which is enough time to give us a chance to shoot in the next few games of PS4 and PS5.
The main focus of the State of Play’s presentation this week was to give PlayStation players a deeper look at the upcoming PS5, Deathloop. Death loop is a highly anticipated action from Arkane Studios, a company that has brought us a disappointing series. The presentation included 9-minute views on the unique games and game equipment.
Although Deathloop has been the main focus of this presentation, that does not mean that Sony has not surprised us with anything extra. Leading up to the launch of the Dehloloop game, we have received new views on specific PS4 and PS5 titles to come. So let’s get into it.
