Does Marvel’s Midnight Suns have a release date?

For the time being, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is once again without a solid release date. At first, the game was revealed with a March 2022 release target, though that quickly fell through. Following much speculation, an October 7, 2022 release date was then locked in. However, that secondary date also missed the mark.

As devs revealed on August 9, Midnight Suns was delayed once more. Now, no specific date is in place, as the team instead focuses on a split release.

Up first, gamers on PC, Xbox Series X | S, and PlayStation 5 will be able to jump in “later this fiscal year,” while those on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch will join at “a later date.”

Gameplay

Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a tactical strategy RPG that features turn-based combat. At the beginning of every encounter, players will be issued with a deck of cards tailored to the team of heroes they’ve brought on each mission. They’ll need to creatively use these cards to deal damage, use skills, and unleash hero move ultimate attacks in order to win battles.

The game’s protagonist, known as The Hunter, is a fully customizable character who will be teaming up with an array of Superheroes from the Marvel universe during the course of the game.

The core gameplay loop will be split between taking on missions and spending time at the in-game hub, The Abbey, where players will be able to explore, upgrade gear and get to know their superhero partners.
