Unfortunately, due to the on-going COVID-19 outbreak, several games that gamers were patiently waiting for are being delayed. Some major titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, which were supposed to be out earlier this year, were delayed as working from home caused issues in the development cycle.

Now, you can add one more title to the list. The Pixar-looking game Kena: Bridge of Spirits, which surprised everyone at the PlayStation online event, has been delayed. Kena was supposed to launch in late 2020, however, working from home has slowed down the development more than developer Ember Labs previously expected. We don’t have the exact new release date, however, we do know that it will launch sometime in early 2021. Check out the announcement trailer for Kena above.

“This year has brought many challenges and out transition to working from home has caused the development to move slower than we hoped,” the official announcement said. “For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Kena: Bridge of Spirits to Q1, 2021. We have not made this decision lightly, but feel it is best for the game and well-being of the team. We will use this time to give the game the polish it deserves and deliver an experience that meets our vision and your expectations.”

Kena: Bridge of Spirits will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. However, the PC version will be exclusive to Epic Games Store. The game is marked as a timed-console exclusive, which means that there is a good chance it will release on other consoles as well. Kena will also give a free next-gen upgrade, which means that you can play the game on PS5 for free if you bought it on PS4.
