Deathloop Release Date

Arkane and Bethesda will be launching Deathloop next year for PC and PlayStation 5 on May 21, 2021.

Originally revealed during E3 2019 press conference, upcoming retro-styled action shooter title Deathloop from developer Arkane Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks has been delayed to Q2 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier, an accidental leak on New Zealand PlayStation Store reveals pre-order bonuses, special editions and a planned release date set for May 21, 2021, which Arkane officially confirmed by releasing a new trailer shortly afterwards.

Bethesda releases a trailer for official launch date reveal today, which is a bit later than anticipated.

Standard Edition features base game and pre-order bonus including character skin, equippable buff and special machete weapon. Deluxe Edition comes bundled with exclusive weapons, skins and two trinkets along with bonus items.

Deathloop is made available for pre-order at launcher and PlayStation Store for players on Windows PC and PlayStation 5. On a later date, Bethesda will be revealing additional details regarding pre-purchase on Steam.

You play an assassin named Colt, who is trapped in a never-ending timeloop on Blackreef and should take out eight key-targets to get out. His efforts will be halted by rival Julianna, who just wants to keep things going by any means.

Players can also switch sides with Julianna and step into other player's campaign to hunt down Colt. You can either have her controlled by AI or opt for an optional multiplayer experience that requires a subscription to PlayStation Plus.

Deathloop will arrive on PlayStation consoles alongside GhostWire: Tokyo before making Xbox Series X debut. Because of a signed exclusivity deal prior to Microsoft acquiring Bethesda, both titles will remain PS5-exclusive for a year.

Arkane Studios had to delay Deathloop due to workplace restriction during ongoing pandemic worldwide. With recent schedule push back, Microsoft will have to wait longer than before to release on Series X/S and Xbox Game Pass.
