Tangowork’s Ghostwire: Tokyo won’t make its planned release window this year. The developer took to Twitter earlier today to announce that it has been delayed until “early” 2022 in order to give the studio enough time to “bring the world of Ghostwire to life” as the team “always envisioned.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Ghostwire Tokyo, it was first announced back in 2019 during Bethesda’s E3 press conference. It is set to tell the tale of people mysteriously disappearing in Tokyo city. Here’s the official story description:
“GhostWire: Tokyo, a new action-adventure game brought to you by the team at Tango Gameworks.
After strange disappearances hit Tokyo’s population, it’s up to you to uncover the source and purge the city of a strange, new evil. Armed with your own mysterious spectral abilities, you will face down the occult, unravel conspiracy theories and experience urban legends like never before. Don’t fear the unknown. Attack it.”
If you’d like to see more you can enjoy the original reveal from all the way back at E3 2019 and the previous gameplay trailer. There’s also another about petting dogs, which is obviously an incredibly important gameplay feature that we couldn’t possibly live without.
