Tango Gameworks push the release of Ghostwire: Tokyo into next year.
Originally expected sometime this year, the release of Ghostwire: Tokyo has been officially bumped to early 2022 by developer Tango Gameworks and publisher Bethesda.
The PC and PlayStation 5 console exclusive was first revealed at Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference. The game’s unsettling tone and modern-day Tokyo setting immediately marked it out as one to watch, even though little was revealed about how the game plays.
In the statement released on Twitter today, the studio says:
“We want to get the game in your hands as soon as possible so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we’ve been hard at work building. At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release window will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life as we’ve always envisioned it.”

You’ll never hear a complaint from us when we get news of a game being delayed, particularly when it’s framed around the health of a studio’s staff. Hopefully, the additional development time will ensure the project meets the studio’s ambitions and keeps its employees safe.
Tango promise that more information on Ghostwire: Tokyo will be revealed in the ‘coming months.’
