It has been announced Ghostwire: Tokyo is no longer releasing this year. 

It seems that Ghostwire: Tokyo will no longer be releasing this year. On Twitter, the team behind the upcoming horror title, Tango Gameworks, revealed that the game was delayed to protect the health of the development team. The game now has an early 2022 release window. Tango states that this new release window will give them time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life how they envisioned it. 

"We want to get the game in your hands as soon as possible so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we've been hard at work building," Tango stated in their tweet. "At the same time, we're also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release window will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life as we've always envisioned it." 

"Thank you for being patient as we work to bring you an experience unlike anything else we've ever made. We can't wait to show you more in the coming months."

Ghostwire: Tokyo was first announced back in 2019. The game was originally meant to release this fall, and will be a timed console exclusive when it releases, though it will be available for PC as well. In Ghostwire, Tokyo is overrun by deadly supernatural forces after 99% of the city's population has vanished. Players will use an arsenal of spectral abilities to fight the paranormal threat and unravel the mystery behind the mass disappearance. The game will take advantage of the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller, with there being haptic feedback for every ability and character action. Ghostwire will also feature advanced 3D spatial audio that will immerse players in an ominous city with dangers to uncover around every corner. 

Ghostwire: Tokyo will release next year for PC and PlayStation 5.
