Publisher Square Enix and developer Luminous Productions announced the open-world action RPG, Forspoken, has been delayed from October 11 to January 24, 2023. It will launch for the PlayStation 5 and PC via SteamEpic Games Store, and Microsoft Store.

"As a result of ongoing discussions with key partners, we have made the strategic decision to move the launch date of Forspoken to January 24, 2023," reads a message from the developers. "All game elements are now complete, and development is in its final polishing phase.

"We would like to thank you for your continued support and patience on this journey. Your excitement for the game inspires us every day and we cannot wait to share more about Forspoken with you later this summer!"

Read details on the game below:

Mysteriously transported from New York City, Frey Holland finds herself trapped in the breathtaking land of Athia. A magical, sentient bracelet is inexplicably wrapped around her arm, and Frey discovers the ability to cast powerful spells and use magic to traverse the sprawling landscapes of Athia. Frey nicknames her new golden companion “Cuff” and sets off to find a way home.

Frey soon learns this beautiful land once flourished under the reign of benevolent matriarchs, called Tantas, until a devastating blight relentlessly corrupted everything it touched. The Break  transformed animals into beasts, men into monsters, and rich landscapes into four dangerous realms. At the center of their shattered domains, the Tantas now rule as maddened and evil sorceresses.

Unaffected by the Break and desperate for answers, Frey reluctantly agrees to help the last remaining citizens of Athia who see her as their only hope. Frey’s journey through this strange and treacherous land will take her deep into the heart of corruption where she must battle monstrous  creatures, confront the powerful Tantas, and uncover secrets that awaken something much more from within.

Probably makes it less likely that I'll be picking it up for more than $30. Usually in January I have too big of a back haul of games to play after buying Black Friday sales and getting Christmas games.

This game just isn't clicking. They are probably trying to figure out some kind of an overhaul to rescue it. But it is DOOMED.
