Don't worry, the Digimon tactics game hasn't been delayed again


You could say it Survived

Fear struck among the Digimonfaithful when news surfaced of yet another Digimon Survivedelay. As it turns out, it was just a media-side gaffe.

The new issue of “Weekly Famitsu” states that Digimon Survive‘s release window is TBA, when previous issues said 2020. That rightly led to people assuming it had suffered another delay. It wouldn’t be all that crazy considering Digimon Survivewas already delayed in 2019, and no one’s working situation is completely normal right now.

However, Bandai Namco says that the change is a misprint. In a statement to Gematsu, a Bandai Namco representative confirms that Digimon Surviveis still set for 2020, and that this is merely “a typo on Famitsu’s side.”

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has a change in release date for Digimon Survive from “2020” to “TBA.”

A @BandaiNamcoUS rep has confirmed to Gematsu that Digimon Survive is still on track for a 2020 release and that “the switch from 2020 to TBA is a typo on Famitsu’s side.”

Digimon Surviveis a fairly radical departure from other Digimongames like Cyber Sleuth. This is a turn-based tactical game, it’s set in a different dimension, and the presentation has a visual novel bent. Also, the trailer that’s embedded above touts death, danger, and tough decisions. It sounds like a wild ride. We’ll find out when Digimon Survivedefinitely absolutely positively releases in 2020 on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
