Take-Two Interactive has delayed the release of Marvel’s Midnight Suns yet again. Following a late-year delay, the upcoming tactical RPG from XCOM developer Firaxis was set to release on October 7th.
The game will now be released sometime during the publisher’s fiscal 2023 year, which ends on March 31, 2023. Midnight Suns will also not be available on all platforms at the same time.
“We have made the decision to move back the launch timing of Marvel’s Midnight Suns to ensure the teams at Firaxis Games and 2K deliver the best possible experience for our fans,” Take-Two said in a statement.
“The title will launch later this fiscal year on Windows PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5. The Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions will follow at a later date.”
It’s not just that Midnight Suns was just delayed (the dev team getting more time is great)
.. it’s that its PC/PS5/Xbox Series versions were delayed to later in fiscal 2023 (by March 31, 2023) but that the Switch and old-gen console versions now have no release date. Yikes pic.twitter.com/rNZ3xxzLok

Midnight Suns by Marvel was first announced at Gamescom 2021. The game, unlike XCOM, includes a deck-building component.
Battles still take multiple turns, but instead of each superhero bringing the same set of abilities to each battle, you’ll draw cards to determine their abilities.
Wolverine, Iron Man, and Blade are among the characters who will join your roster. You’ll also design your own superhero, The Hunter.
