New Release Date for Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden

The highly anticipated game from Life is Strange developer, Don't Nod, has been delayed until next year to ensure its success in the midst of a crowded release calendar. Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden was originally scheduled to be released on November 7, but will now launch on February 13 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Focus Entertainment, the game's publisher, released a statement explaining the decision to postpone the release. The statement acknowledges the intense competition in the market for AAA titles at the end of the year and expresses the belief that a release during a less saturated period will give Banishers the attention it deserves.

The decision to delay the game is understandable considering the stacked release schedule of 2023. October alone will see the launch of highly anticipated games like Alan Wake 2, Sonic Superstars, Forza Motorsport, and Super Mario Bros. Wonder. The following months are equally packed with releases such as Robocop: Rogue City, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, and Tekken 8.

Don't Nod's reputation for crafting unique narratives with compelling characters is well established through games like Life is Strange, Vampyr, and Tell Me Why. It would be a shame for Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden's supernatural love story to be overshadowed by the flurry of other highly anticipated games of the year.

Fans of Don't Nod and gamers alike will have to wait a few more months to experience Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden. However, this delay will hopefully allow the game to shine in a less crowded release window.
