The next game from Housemarque – a studio that had specialized in 2D shooters like the cool ones Resogun and Nex Machina— has us quite intrigued. We talk about Returnal, an exclusive title for PS5 that we were supposedly going to be able to play from March 19, 2021, but whose release date has been postponed.
The news was revealed through the official PlayStation Twitter account. The new release date of Returnal will be the April 30, 2021
According to the statement, the reason for the postponement is that Sony Interactive Entertainment and Housemarque want to give the development team extra time. The goal is to “polish the game to the level of quality that players expect.” In a post-worldCyberpunk 2077, It is understandable that the studios want to double assure themselves of the technical quality of their degrees. We just hope the team doesn’t have to crunch to get there.
In this game we control Selene. She is an astronaut trapped in a ‘time loop’ that forces her to return again and again to a nightmare planet each time she dies. But each cycle is different from the previous one, so you will find different enemies and new weapons and tools to defend yourself
It’s sad that this game takes longer. But we are willing to wait for the new release date of Returnal to be able to enjoy a quality title on PS5.
