Kena: Bridge of Spirits Delayed to 2021


The delay hammer has struck again. While we always have games delayed in gaming, it definitely feels like we’ve had more delays than ever before this year. It makes total sense as well. Not only are developers coming up against a pandemic that has thrown everyone for a loop, but we’re also coming up a notoriously hard time to finish and releases a game: launch day of a new console generation. The latest game to succumb to delay-itis is Kena: Bridge of Spirits, which will now release in Q1 2021.

You may remember Kena: Bridge of Spirits from the PS5 Games Showcase that happened earlier this year. The game is a colourful and absolutely amazing looking 3D action game, that we’ve been super keen to see more of. The game is also the first project out of Ember Lab, a new development studio, so it’s not surprising that the team needs a little bit more time to make sure it’s the best it can be.

The official reason given for the delay is the impacts Ember Lab faced in transitioning to working from home and to maintain the wellbeing of their team. They also stated that this extra time will be used to polish the game, so it sounds like the game is almost done and just needs a little more time time in the oven to be finished up.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits releases for PC, PS4 and PS5 in Q1 2021. For more information, check out the official website.
