Marvel’s Midnight Suns had originally been revealed back in August of last year with a March 2022 release window, but ended up getting delayed to the second half of 2022. It seems that the developers still need a bit more time, as they’ve announced that the game will receive an additional delay.

The game is now set to release sometime this fiscal year on next-gen platforms (meaning it should release before March 2023 for those), while the Switch and accompanying older-gen versions will release sometime afterwards. The delay is owed to the team wanting to deliver the “best possible experience for everyone” and the title being “easily the biggest game [they]’ve ever made”, likely causing a few complications in its development.

Here is the full statement below:

Marvel's Midnight Suns - The Art of the Game

Those that want to take a deeper dive into the design of Marvel’s Midnight Suns might be interested to hear that The Art of the Game is planned. It’s coming from Titan Books and will be available on October 18, 2022.

A couple of images from the book have already been posted online. In the first one above, we’re able to see the area known as “The Abbey”. Below, we have art and concepts for Lilith, the game’s original antagonist.

Marvels Midnight Suns microtransactions

According to 2K Games and Firaxis, Marvel’s Midnight Suns won’t have any pay-to-win microtransactions.

The upcoming tactical RPG was just unveiled during Gamescom: Opening Night Live 2021 last week. Then a few days ago, we got our first look at gameplay with a new trailer and a length video. However, some fans quickly became concerned that microtransactions and a pay-to-win scenario could be involved based on the footage shown and the use of cards.
