February 2, 2022 The description for a video showcase of Ghostwire: Tokyo has revealed the official release date.
Spooky looking horror game Ghostwire: Tokyo now has an official release date, following its delay last year. In the description for a video showcase set for February 3, Tango Gameworks says Ghostwire: Tokyo will launch March 25.
In a message posted to Twitter last year, Tango Gameworks obliquely referenced the difficulties presented by the preceding year’s work-from-home requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We want to get the game in your hands as soon as possible so you can experience the unforgettable version of a haunted Tokyo that we’ve been hard at work building,” the studio wrote. “At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango.”
Ghostwire: Tokyo was first announced at publisher Bethesda’s E3-adjacent showcase in 2019, and got a better look at some in-game footage during the PlayStation 5 reveal event last year. The footage shows a surreal version of modern-day Tokyo that’s inhabited by malevolent spirits. It’s a first-person game, and you’ll be using a range of paranormal powers to defend yourself from the bloodthirsty ghosts plaguing the city.
Here’s the reveal trailer, in case you need a refresher.
Bethesda has since been acquired by Microsoft, but Ghostwire: Tokyo will be launching on PC and the PlayStation 5 exclusively when it comes out in March.
