Square Enix’s Outriders has been delayed to February 2, 2021, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam & Epic). However, it will support a complete cross-play experience and will offer free upgrades to next-gen.
Outriders was originally set to be released in Holiday 2020, but complications due to the COVID-19 pandemic and “work-process-restructuring” lead to the delay.
Fortunately, Square Enix has said that the core game is in a “largely complete state,” but its testing operations ran into some issues with the switch from normal operations, and the team needs “a bit more time to get it right and ensure that the Outriders experience will be as smooth and issue-free as it possibly can be when we launch.”
As previously mentioned, the good news is this new game will support a complete cross-play experience. Additionally, there will be a free game upgrade from PS4 to PS5 and Smart Delivery will be supported for Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S.
Outriders is a 1 to 3, drop-in-drop-out co-op shooter that we said, in our hands-on time, feels like what happens when Mass Effect meets Diablo.
