Ghostwire: Tokyo leak hints at potential March launch date

ghostwire: tokyo march release date rumor psn

Because Q1 isn’t stacked enough

While Tango Gameworks’ Ghostwire: Tokyo has been highly anticipated for some time, publisher Bethesda has yet to offer a release date for the neon-stained cyberpunk adventure. Having been in development for several years, eager street ninjas have been offered little more than a general release window of “2022”. However, a recent leak on the PlayStation Network has set the rumor mill turning.

Just yesterday, the official Ghostwire: Tokyo PSN page updated, announcing a release date of March 24, 2022. This was hastily removed, but not before savvy folks over at MP1st snapped a quick screengrab. While this (surprisingly close) date represents the first possible “lock-in” for Ghostwire: Tokyo’s release, fans would do well to take the leak with a grain of salt until the title has been officially confirmed by its publisher. Still, it’s tough not to be excited at the prospect of slicing ‘n’ dicing through Neo Tokyo so soon.

If the March date is to be believed, then Ghostwire: Tokyo will launch amidst an absolute slew of hyped video games. The first quarter of this year is absolutely stacked, — a victim of 2021’s many delays — and February/March sees the coming of Elden Ring, Sifu, Horizon Forbidden West, Shadow Warrior 3, The King of Fighters XV, Dying Light 2, and many others. I feel your pain. I want to play them all too and, as we know, they must all be played on release week.

Either way, we’ll be sure to let you know should Bethesda or Tango Gameworks be forthcoming with an official launch date. Ghostwire: Tokyo is currently scheduled to launch this year on PS5 and PC.
