Ghostwire: Tokyo was announced during 2019’s E3. While a release date was never announced, it was implied that tthe Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks title was to be released later this year. But that was not meant to be, as the studio has announced that it will be delaying the release of the game to early next year.
Tango Gameworks announced the delay in a tweet. The reason behind it was to “protect the health of everyone at Tango”. Which makes sense, as the real Tokyo just entered another COVID-19 state of emergency. And the delay to Ghostwire: Tokyo will also presumably mean that staffers won’t have to crunch to get the game out.

From what little we’ve seen of Ghostwire; Tokyo, it looks to be an action-heavy horror title. The action bits is quite the departure from what you’d expect from Shinji Mikami. That being said, the horror aspects are heavily tilted towards the Japanese folklore side of things. Which is a definite plus if you’re a fan of that.
While the delay is not great news for those who prefer to experience Ghostwire: Tokyo on PC, it isn’t so bad for those who want it on a PS5. After all, the console still isn’t the easiest thing to get a hold of.
