Marvel's Midnight Suns had originally intended to release a couple of months back, as per its initial announcement. However, it had been struck with a delay soon thereafter, and Marvel's Midnight Suns' potential release window has now been pushed to the second half of 2022.
Marvel's Midnight Suns, a tactical RPG, has been silent since this delay which can only imply that developer Firaxis Games has had its head down to concentrate on it. Marvel's Midnight Suns' card-based gameplay has been depicted in trailers with many playable characters revealed, but players await more information about when they can expect the game to finally launch. However, new details may hint at the possibility of a release date announcement soon.
As reported by Kotaku, Marvel's Midnight Suns has been officially rated M by the Australian Classification Board. With an official rating in tow, Marvel's Midnight Suns may be closer to a release than fans think as such ratings typically precipitate a launch in the near future. Slated for a 2022 release anyhow, it is expected to launch sometime within the next seven months, but could see a release as soon as this summer if development runs smoothly.
The Australian Board determines that Marvel's Midnight Suns is rated M due to "Moderate Impact themes and violence, Mild Impact language, drug use, and sex, and Very Mild Impact nudity." More has been shared about Marvel's Midnight Suns' turn-based action than its activities and interactions at the Abbey, but these ratings do not seem out of the ordinary for a AAA superhero title.
Until it eventually does receive a release date, fans continue to speculate about which characters may be added to Marvel's Midnight Suns. Its roster already features an eclectic cast that differs from its comic book source material, with notable characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, and Wolverine in the fold as well. Further, the debut of a wholly new and customizable protagonist character is a welcome addition.
It has yet to be seen how extensive Marvel's Midnight Suns' battle-card system and social systems are, nor how many characters it will take to fill out its roster. More details could be on the way soon if its launch is truly near, but fans will have to wait for an official announcement to hear when its new release date will be.
Marvel's Midnights Suns is currently scheduled to release in the second half of 2022 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
