Every major delay we’ve seen in 2020: Empire of Sin, Rainbow Six Quarantine, The Last of Us 2 & more
2020 has been pretty rough for gamers, considering all the major delays they have been hit with.
2020 hasn’t exactly kicked off the way gamers wanted it to.
Some of these games have been delayed indefinitely, while others have been given a new release date or just a release window.
Continue reading for all the latest details we have.
The Last of Us 2
Considering how developers Naughty Dog set up an event to unveil the release date for this game, it was pretty heartbreaking to see it get knocked back.
Gamers can now expect to see The Last of Us 2 release on 29 May 2020.
Dying Light 2
With no word on a new release date, it might be a long wait for us to be reacquainted with Kyle Crane and the city of Harram.
Stay tuned for our updates.
Watch Dogs: Legion
Judging from all of the available information on the game, the next Watch Dogs entry was going to take us to the streets of a post-Brexit London to join a hacker group.
However, Ubisoft has pushed back the release date to a ‘2020-2021’ window.

This wasn’t the news that gamers wanted, but this delay has been implemented to ensure more development on a game that needs it.
Empire of Sin
Empire of Sin is an upcoming strategy video game being developed by Romero Games that puts you at the heart of the ruthless criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago.
Empire of Sin will no longer be coming out in spring 2020. It’s now been delayed until autumn 2020, as more development time is needed.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Ori and the Will of the Wisps was delayed quietly by Microsoft, but only by around a month.
Though we were meant to see it in February, the latest trailer indicated that it will launch in March instead.
No Statements have been made yet, so stay tuned for our updates.
Doom was supposed to release initially in November 2019, but it was pushed back by Bethesda Softworks to 20 March 2020.
This means that Doom now shares a release date with Animal Crossing: New Horizons, two games that sit at opposite ends of the gaming spectrum.
Gods & Monsters
Coming from the same developers as Assasin’s Creed Odyssey, Gods & Monsters is another game that allegedly needs more time in order to reach the developers’ standards.
We can expect to see Gods & Monsters any time between now and March 2021, so prepare for a wait.
Marvel’s Avengers was supposed to be with us by mid-May 2020, but it has been delayed by a number of months.
The developer, Crystal Dynamics, wants the game to reach their high standards, so they were not comfortable with putting the game out in its current state.
Besides the games that were just mentioned, there are in fact MORE games that have had their launch dates tinkered with.
Don’t expect to see Cyberpunk 2077 or the Final Fantasy 7 remake for a while, and the same goes for Iron Man VR, Skull & Bones and Vampire: The Masquerade.
We will be back with all the updates on these games as we receive them.
