One of my personal most anticipated games of the year, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, has been delayed. From the team at Firaxis: “We will launch later this fiscal year on Windows PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5, with the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions following at a later date.”
This fiscal year for publisher 2K ends March 31, 2023. In all likelihood, we won’t see the game release until next year, with the last-gen and Switch versions coming even later (but hopefully still in 2023).
The reason for the delay is a vague as one can expect from these announcements: “[…] we will use this extra time to make sure we are delivering the best possible experience for everyone. Marvel’s Midnight Suns is easily the biggest game we’ve ever made and we’re incredibly appreciative of all the support players have shared with us through the years.”

The previous release date was October 7, 2022, and before that, it was due to launch in March.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a card-based, tactical strategy game created by the developers of Civilization and XCOM. It explores a darker corner of the Marvel universe involving demons and black magic. The demon Lilth invades Earth, and it’s up to a team of heroes (and anti-heroes) to thwart her.
Confirmed cast includes Spider-Man, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Blade, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, and Captain Marvel. They join as allies with the player character, who plays Lilith’s daughter, the Hunter.
