Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been an interesting thing to see in the offering of video games based on Marvel comic properties. Coming from Take-Two Interactive, 2K, and the developers of the XCOM games, it offered players a strategic turn-based experience with some of our favorite Marvel heroes and villains. Unfortunately, it seems we’re going to be waiting quite a bit longer than expected to play it. 2K and Take-Two just announced that Midnight Suns is getting delayed to the back half of the 2022 calendar year.
The delay of Marvel’s Midnight Suns to late 2022 was announced in a tweet from the game’s official Twitter and in Take-Two’s Q2 2022 earnings results report on November 3, 2021. The game was originally supposed to launch in March 2022, as announced during its reveal. However, during the call and in the aforementioned tweet, Firaxis and 2K stated that more time would be necessary than originally anticipated. As a result, the game has now been pushed back from March into the latter half of 2022.
Developed by the Firaxis Games team that has brought us the rebooted XCOM games, Marvel’s Midnight Suns invites players into the more occult side of the Marvel universe. As the deadly HYDRA group summons the infernal Mother of All Demons Lilith. Now, as a unique hero, players must gather the mystical talents of Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, Blade, Magik, and more Marvel heroes to wage strategic battle against Lilith and save the world before she summons her master, Chthon.
Midnight Suns promises to be a Marvel game unlike any we have seen yet with Firaxis at the helm of development. Unfortunately, it seems the team needs more than a little extra time to make sure the game is everything it can be and more. With that in mind, stay tuned to Shacknews as we await a new release date in late 2022.
