Bloober Team has delayed the psychological horror game The Medium until January 2021.
In a statement published on Twitter, the company explained the delay:
After much careful thought and consideration, today we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Medium to January 28, 2021.
It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but one made due to the COVID-19 situation in Poland, as well as the current schedule of other games on the market. Bloober Team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious, fear-inducing experience to date.
The additional development time allow us to add further polish, ensuring we deliver our innovative, genre-pushing vision of interactive psychological horror. Rest assured, the delay will not stop us sharing information with you, and you can expect us to unravel a few more layers of The Medium’s great mystery soon.
Stay tuned and stay safe.
The Medium was first shown off at the Xbox Games Showcase back in July. The game lets you explore both the real world and the spirit world simultaneously. Players use psychic powers to solve puzzles and survive.
The game was scheduled to release on December 10 for PC and Xbox Series X|S. The delay until January 28 is obviously not a long wait. So if that gives them enough time to iron out the kinks, it seems that they made the right call. The delay comes on the heels of several delays for Cyberpunk 2077.
