Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road, The Upcoming Mobile Game, Has Been Delayed
The mobile Kingdom Hearts spin-off was targeting a spring release, but will now arrive at a later date.
Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road, the upcoming fast-paced mobile spin-off, has been delayed. The game, which was originally targeting a Spring 2020 release, will now arrive later than expected.
The news of the game's delay was announced on its official Twitter account, which said that more details will be revealed in June. Kingdom Hearts fans will have to wait a while to find out when Dark Road is releasing, but as the tweet notes, "current conditions" amid the COVID-19 pandemic aren't ideal for development.

We apologize for the late update, as we were trying to find some means of making a Spring release.
Another announcement will be coming in early June, so please stay tuned.#KHDR pic.twitter.com/xW0hWWcfFF
If it still comes out this year, it'll be the second Kingdom Hearts release of 2020, following Kingdom Hearts III Re:mind. Once it releases, Dark Road will be available within the Kingdom Hearts Union X app, although it'll be a standalone experience.
The game will explore the pass of villain Xehanort, so fans of Kingdom Hearts' lore will likely appreciate it. Hopefully we'll have an updated release window soon.
