Original article [Mon 18th Apr, 2022 13:50 BST] Digimon Survive, the chronically-delayed RPG from Bandai Namco, appears to have finally secured a release date, with the game launching (in Japan, at least) on July 28th, 2022.
The news is hopefully the final hurdle for the game, after it was originally supposed to be launching in 2019. It was subsequently delayed to 2020, then to 2021, and then to 2022 – crikey. Like many developers, it seems the COVID-19 pandemic caused havoc for production of the game, with the game’s producer, Kazumasa Habu, directly sourcing the pandemic when the game’s delay into 2021 was originally announced.
The release date comes from a Japanese magazine, so whether Digimon Survive will launch worldwide on the same date is currently up in the air. Once Bandai Namco confirms for definite, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Are you confident Digimon Survive will actually release on July 28th? Will you be picking it up? Let us know with a comment.
