Tango Gameworks has announced that Ghostwire: Tokyo has been delayed into next year.
The studio made the announcement through its social channels, citing the pandemic and preserving the team’s health as the reason for the delay. Like several others over the past year, the team has been working from home, which has changed the workflow for plenty of games since 2020.
We’ve made the decision to delay the launch of Ghostwitre: Tokyo to early 2022.
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. At the same time, we’re also focused on protecting the health of everyone at Tango. Our new release window will give us time to bring the world of Ghostwire to life as we’ve always envisioned it.
Thank you for being patient as we work to bring you an experience unlike anything else we’ve ever made. We can’t wait to show you more in the coming months.

Ghostwire: Tokyo is one of the few games coming from a Bethesda studio that isn’t coming to Xbox consoles following the company’s acquisition by Microsoft. At least, not at the moment. Sony and Tango Gameworks had an exclusivity deal in the works prior to Microsoft buying the company, so its PlayStation 5 console exclusivity will likely run out sometime after it launches next year. Deathloop is in a similar situation and is set to launch on PlayStation 5 and PC on September 14.
