Developer Luminous Productions has postponed the release of the open world action RPG Forspoken from May 25 to October 11.
In a statement on Twitter, the development team said the delay would let them “focus all of our efforts on polishing the game.” The game only received its original release date last December.

PS5 and PC games were announced in 2020, and have been relatively quiet since then. During an actual preview last year, we said that the game – created primarily by the developers of Final Fantasy 15 – has a JRPG formula that is “different” and “looks like an entry game”. more open-world role in the veins of Assassin’s Creed and The Witcher than anything I’ve seen from Square Enix.”
The team also has high hopes for its surprise project, from working towards “the highest quality visuals ever” in an open-world game, to bringing in Rogue One writer Gary Whitta and Uncharted creator Amy Hennig at various points in development.
Starring Frey, a young woman dragged from modern New York to a fantasy world called Athia, the game will focus on magic, parkour, and high-speed action. Despite the delay, the game still has several versions available for pre-order.
