Kena: Bridge of Spirits looked like it was so close to the finish line. It appeared like it would be an exciting game for PC and PS5 owners to help wrap up the summer. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it's going to happen. It turns out that the adventure from Ember Lab will need a few more weeks in the oven and will now release in September.
Here's the statement from the Ember Lab Twitter account:
We have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Kena until September 21st to polish the game across all platforms. The team has been working extremely hard and we feel the extra time is critical to ensure the best experience possible.
We know many of you are eager to play and we appreciate your patience as the team continues to work on delivering the best version of Kena.
Thank you for your amazing support!
Kena: Bridge of Spirits was originally slated to release on August 24. This latest setback will only push the release date back for one more month, which is significantly less time than Kena's previous delay.
For the uninitiated, Kena: Bridge of Spirits follows a spirit guide tasked with escorting the departed to the end of life's journey. Her quest has her seeking out the sacred mountain shrine, where she will uncover keys to the past. She'll be accompanied by small creatures called the Rot, who can aid Kena in battle and help her solve various environmental puzzles.
While Kena's latest delay is a bummer, our recent hands-on preview still has us excited to see the final product. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is set to release on September 26 on PC (as an Epic Games Store exclusive), PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.

I keep forgetting about this game. Looks like something my kids would enjoy, but I don't let them play on my pc so not going to happen. Maybe there will be a Switch release later?
Damn, been really excited for this game but the more polished the better I guess.
Young Jade! But where's Pey'j ?!
