This year began with a slew of high-profile game delays, most notably Cyberpunk 2077 and the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but then COVID-19 struck and and threw the games industry through a loop. We’ve compiled a list of every game that’s been delayed into 2020 and beyond. Some of these games have been delayed indefinitely while others have release windows or a final release date.
We’ll continually update this list as more games are delayed.

Dying Light 2

No More Heroes 3

Rainbow Six Quarantine
Release date: Between April 2020 and March 2021

Skull & Bones

Watch Dogs: Legion
Watch Dogs: Legion was set to take us to a post-Brexit London on March 6, 2020, but it was also delayed to Ubisoft’s fiscal 2020-2021 year before settling on an October 29 launch date. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot attributed the delays to give the teams “more development time to ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented.”
Release date: October 29, 2020
DedSec has made its way across the pond to a post-Brexit London ruled by a surveillance state. Players will be able to control any NPC they come to meet. But be careful, because once they die, they’re dead for good.
