It’s a medium-sized delay
What crummy fortunetellers and soothsayers we are. We couldn’t even predict The Medium‘s delay before it happened.
The Xbox Series X launch-window lineup took a not-insignificant hit as Bloober Team’s new horror game The Medium got pushed back into early 2021. Originally scheduled for December 10, 2020, it has been delayed until January 28, 2021. That’s a seven-week setback.
Bloober Team attributes the delay explicitly to COVID-19 and implicitly to the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 swooped in and stole The Medium‘s launch date. You don’t need to be an industry analyst to know that going head-to-head with Cyberpunk 2077 is the surest way to guarantee your game suffers a quick and unremarkable death.
In the meantime, the Krakow-based developer will be “adding polish.” The whole game’s Polish! This is the internet, where you can’t throw tomatoes at me.
