Marvel's Iron Man VR Pushed Back, Now Coming In May
Suiting up takes a while.
In the midst of a large spate of delays, Marvel's Iron Man VR is the latest to be pushed to a new release date. Developer Camouflaj has announced that the PSVR game, previously set for February 28, will now release on May 15, 2020.
In a tweet explaining the decision, the studio said the move is to assure it can "deliver on our vision and meet the high expectations of our amazing community." It also teases that we'll hear more from the team soon.
In order to deliver on our vision and meet the high expectations of our amazing community, we’ve made the difficult decision to move Marvel’s Iron Man VR to a May 15, 2020 release. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding. You’ll be hearing from us again soon!— Camouflaj (@Camouflaj) January 17, 2020
The game was initially announced during Sony's first State of Play. It uses the VR headset to imitate Tony Stark's helmet HUD. The game aims to be "a deeply personal, and appropriately funny, narrative," according to game director Ryan Payton. Sony has not held a State of Play yet this year, but we're expecting to hear more from the company about its PS5 launch plans sometime soon--especially since the company is opting out of E3 again this year.
This is far from the only spring delay to be announced recently. Square Enix pushed back both the Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Crystal Dynamics' Avengers, and CD Projekt Red has delayed Cyberpunk 2077. What was once a very crowded spring release schedule has gotten a lot less so with the reshuffling.
