Digimon Survive, the upcoming tactical RPG set in the Digimon universe, has been delayed into 2022. And given that we’re already a few days away from November, the game was cutting it closer if a 2021 window was still open before the delay was made official.
News of this came from the official Digimon game social channels, where Producer Kazumasa Habu explained that the team at developer Witchcraft needs more time to get the game right.
The full statement reads as follows:
To Digimon fans patiently awaiting Digimon Survive:
First of all, we’d like to thank you for your continued patience and support from Digimon Survive. Our original goal was to launch Digimon Survive in 2021. However, due to the need to allocate more time to development, it is necessary to move the game’s release date to 2022. While the decision hasn’t been an easy one, we want to make sure we use this extra time to enhance the quality of the game.
The entire development team is working as hard as we can on the game, and we kindly ask for your patience. We look forward to sharing more news and updates about Digimon Survive with you all, soon. Thank you again for your continued support.

Digimon Survive was originally announced in 2018, but has been delayed a few times at this point. The game will differ from previous Digimon games, in that it will be a choice-based strategy RPG. While many of the previous games in the series have allowed players to pick early Digimon partners, the plot of Survive will require the player to team up with an Agumon at first. The game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
