While a 2021 release was expected for Ghostwire: Tokyo, Project Athia’s January 2022 schedule is quite a surprise. After all, the reveal trailer for the game only gave us a couple of glimpses at gameplay. There’s also the fact that Square Enix usually takes some time to develop their games, with Final Fantasy VII Remake being announced nearly five years before it eventually released on the PS4.
