Guilty Gear: Strive delayed to early 2021

No longer due out in late 2020.

Guilty Gear: Strive

Arc System Works has delayed Guilty Gear: Strive from its previously planned late 2020 release window to early 2021, citing development delays as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the implementation of additional improvements based on user feedback from the closed beta test. It will be available for PlayStation 4 when it launches.

Here is the full message from producer Guilty Gear: Strive Takeshi Yamanaka:

Thank you for your interest in Guilty Gear: Strive. This is Takeshi Yamanaka, producer of Guilty Gear: Strive. We have previously announced the release of Guilty Gear: Strive for late 2020, however we have decided to change the release schedule to early 2021.

While our company’s staff and our business partners are putting in a sincere effort in dealing with the changes due to the spread of COVID-19, every aspect of our development schedule has faced delays. In addition, we have decided to set up a schedule to further improve the quality of the game responding to everyone’s help and feedback from the recent closed beta test.

We apologize sincerely to everyone who has been anticipating the release with keen excitement. Ourselves, we are dedicated to bringing you a new Guilty Gear game that will satisfy all of our fans. Please be assured that we will make good use of that extra time to do this.
