Forspoken, the action-adventure game from Luminous Productions and Square Enix, will not be coming out in May, the developer announced on Monday. Instead, Forspoken will now be released on Oct. 11, in order to give Luminous Productions more time to polish the game.
“Our vision for this exciting new IP is to deliver a game world and hero that gamers across the globe will want to experience for years to come, so getting it right is extremely important to us,” Luminous Productions said in a statement to players. “To that end, over the next few months we will focus all of our efforts on polishing the game and can not wait for you all to experience Frey’s journey this fall.”
Forspoken follows the story of Frey Holland, a New Yorker teleported to the world of Athia where she suddenly gains incredible powers. She’ll have to use these powers to defeat dangerous creatures and fly around the world using “magic parkour.” As she journeys through the world she’ll have to face off against enemies call the Break, and overthrow the rule of the Tantas, the matriarchs who run Athia.
Forspoken will come to PlayStation 5 and Windows PC when it arrives on its new release date.
