Deliver Us Mars release date

Deliver Us Mars is scheduled to be released on Thursday, February 2, 2023, on both generations of Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as PC. There is no word currently on whether or not a Nintendo Switch version is in the works.

The game was originally due to arrive on September 27, 2022, but was ultimately delayed to ensure that Deliver Us Mars launches in the best possible state.

On the delay, developer KeokeN Interactive said: “It is important to us that this experience is the best it can be at launch. With this in mind, we’ve collectively made the difficult decision to move the release date to 2nd of February 2023 in order to ensure that we are able to live up to that ambition.
