Originally set to release this February, Square Enix has announced that the release of its upcoming RPG Shooter Outriders has been delayed to April 1st.
Regarding the delay, the Outriders development team said:
“We believe itʼs important that players get to experience a new IP like Outriders before release, so that you can decide for yourselves whether the game is something you wish to pre-order, purchase, or play.
For this reason weʼre excited to announce that we will be publishing a free demo*, giving everyone the chance to play the first few hours of the game with all four classes – in both single player and co-op – along with seamless migration of your character and progress to the full game.
Speaking of which, we have decided to move the release date of Outriders to April 1st 2021. We will spend this extra time fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch.
Thanks for hanging tight a little longer – we appreciate your patience!
The Outriders Team”
