The Medium has been delayed to January 28, developer Bloober Team announced on Twitter this morning. The horror game was previously scheduled to launch on December 10.


“It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but one made due to the covid-19 situation in Poland as well as the current schedule of other games on the market,” the official statement reads, indicating that Cyberpunk 2077's recent delay to December might have helped Bloober Team come to this decision.

The Medium, which harnesses the power of the Xbox Series X for a unique mechanic that allows the player to explore two worlds at once, was one of the few exclusives set to arrive on Microsoft’s next-gen console within a month of its launch.

“The additional development time will allow us to add further polish,” the statement adds.

I can understand COVID - but, honestly, maybe I’m in the minority when I say this, I’m not going to play CP2077 at launch.  I’ll wait for the next gen upgrades then buy it.  If Cyberpunk would have launched in a different time frame this probably wouldn’t be the case.  I’m just unwilling to play an unoptimized game when they have the upgrade on the horizon.
