Bridge of Spirits follows an ill-fated path, where its expected launch gets moved back from next-gen console launch period. Coronavirus outbreak has made it very difficult for studios to keep up with their anticipated release calendar.

Ember Lab stated that working from home has slowed down development progress more than they ever hoped for and therefore, they had to come up with decision to postpone their latest project and delay its release to early 2021.
