Many developers, when explaining the delay in their titles , will put the pandemic and all that it meant as the main excuse. The change in working mode, which resulted in a slower creation process.
So, with all this, we are going to review the most important video games that have been delayed for the end of this year and those that directly postponed their launch for next year.
Destiny 2: ‘The Witch Queen’. Destiny 2’s largest expansion, which was planned to be released in November of this year, will be delayed until February 22, 2022. The Witch Queen is considered by many to be the expansion that will introduce the most changes in the game.
One of these changes that we fans of this game had requested will be introduced with this expansion and will be the possibility of creating weapons. Each player can create their own weapon and combine it with different shaders and modifiers. In this regard, melee weapons will also make their debut in the series for the first time. So far, some blades have been announced with which we can shoot at medium distance and cover ourselves. This expansion will have a value of 40 dollars and we must not forget that in December of this year the new season will be released along with the Bungie 30th anniversary package.
Gran Turismo 7 : The seventh installment of this title should have been one of the flags of the launch of ps5 and one of the last great titles of ps4 in this 2021. However, all these plans were truncated when the CEO of Sony Interactive announced its delay to 2022.
It is the most anticipated game by fans of the saga, as it promises to return to the roots that made it so popular and that is CarRPG. The previous version, Gran Turismo Sport , was one hundred percent focused on online gaming and the world of Esport.
Gran Turismo 7 is going to propose us to get behind the wheel of a car “medium hair” to go up in category and acquire better vehicles. In other words, it’s going back to what made us fall in love with this title in previous installments. Of course, a permanent connection will be necessary to enjoy the multiplayer mode and the campaign mode.
Another of the most important novelties would be the introduction of dynamic weather in the middle of a race and the passage of time. Something that was wanted to be done in the previous installment, but it was not achieved in the depth expected by the players. Another important change will be a greater visual customization of the vehicle and a return to a deeper configuration in terms of car settings, which had been left out in the last installment.
God of War Ragnarok: Another of the great titles that he was announcing for this year, will be released in 2022. This was announced by Santa Mónica, the studio in charge of developing the title and thus being able to meet the quality standards that a saga like this deserves . Recently, in statements made in a YouTube video, David Jaffe, creator of the game, among other data said that the title would be around 40 hours of play.
He himself said he was not sure if that time refers to how long it would take to overcome the story and the secrets that would be hidden in the game to complete a platinum trophy, for example, have not been taken into account. Whatever the circumstances, those 40 hours would double the content of the previous installment launched in 2018, which averaged 20-25 hours.
Far Cry 6 : This is one of the games that is causing the most expectations and one of the ones that we are waiting the most. The sixth installment of this saga created by Ubisoft was supposed to arrive on February 18, 2021, but its launch was delayed to October 7 of this year. The game is in the first person and its development will be in the tropical paradise of Yara, which will make a clear allusion to Cuba. This place will be ruled by the dictator Anton Castillo, played by the actor Giancarlo Esposito, who became very famous for his role in the BreakingBad series.
As a novelty we will be able to ride a horse, mount a jetpack, there will be new animals that will make us allies such as a crocodile and a dachshund that will be part of our group of allies.
There will also be a new arsenal at our disposal, with a total of 49 new weapons and of which we highlight one that launches CDs while Macarena’s song is playing. This delivery will also be a what is known as a ‘game as a service’ and here we leave you the road map so you can see the content that will come out once the game is launched.
