Outriders Delayed Again, Demo Coming In February

The next game from the developers of Bulletstorm has been delayed once again.


Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly's new game, Outriders, has been delayed again. The Square Enix-published shooter will no longer release in February, and is now scheduled for release on April 1. That is not a joke.

"We will spend this extra time fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic experience at launch. Thanks for hanging tight a little longer. We appreciate your patience!" the developer said in its message posted on Twitter.

While Outriders will no longer release in February, the developers are releasing a free demo for the game on February 25 that showcases its first few hours. All four character classes will be available in the demo for both single-player and co-op. Additionally, progress from the demo will carry forward to the full game, People Can Fly said.

This is just the latest delay for Outriders. It was originally pegged to release in December 2020, but complications related to COVID-19 led to a delay into the new year. Outriders is far from the only game that has been delayed due to COVID-19; you can see a roundup here of all the games that were impacted by COVID-19.

People Can Fly also announced that Outriders would have no microtransactions and is not a games-as-service title.

Outriders will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, while people playing on PS5 and Xbox Series X will receive free upgrades.
