New Deathloop release date spotted on the PlayStation Store

PlayStation 5 timed console exclusive Deathloop appears to have a new release date. The PlayStation Store now lists a May release date for the game and details a deluxe edition.

According to the listing, Deathloop will now arrive on May 21. Originally set to release in 2020, the game was recently delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Developer Arkane Studios previously said that it aimed to get the game out in the second quarter of 2021, so the May date lines up with that plan.

The game is a timed console exclusive for the PlayStation 5, despite Microsoft’s recent acquisition of publisher Bethesda. Shortly following the news of the acquisition, Xbox Vice-President of Gaming Phil Spencer said that Microsoft would honor Bethesda’s current exclusivity deals.

Deathloop will release on PC as well, but online retailers like Steam are not showing the updated release date at present. It’s unclear if the game will still be available on digital storefronts considering that it’s likely come to Xbox Game Pass for PC as part of Microsoft’s acquisition.

Pre-orders for the game are now live on the PlayStation Store. In addition to the $60 standard edition, the PS Store now lists an $80 deluxe edition of the game, which comes with a host of digital extras. Players will receive three weapons, two skins, and a digital soundtrack of the game.

Neither Bethesda or Arkane Studios have confirmed the release date, though both accounts have tweeted congratulations to Sony for today’s PlayStation 5 launch. Bethesda’s celebratory tweet only reaffirms that Deathloop will release on the console sometime next year.

The Elder Scrolls 6: release date speculation, rumors, news, and more
The Elder Scrolls

The Elder Scrolls 6 was first revealed five years ago with a 36-second announcement trailer. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a lot of concrete news on the title since.

Now that Bethesda has launched Starfield — the developer's first brand-new IP in 25 years — with great success despite plenty of criticism on the game's advertised scale versus its gameplay, it goes without saying that the studio will be shifting to the next installment in the Elder Scrolls series. The new title will be building off the wild success of its predecessor Skyrim (which made the cut for Digital Trends' top 50 video games of all time) and MMO The Elder Scrolls Online.

PlayStation Portal: release date, price, specs, and more
The PlayStation Portal alongside Sony's other new headsets.

After being teased under the code name Project Q, we now have a clear picture of just what Sony's latest hardware will be. Officially called the PlayStation Portal, this curious device has many gamers a bit confused about what it is, what it can do, and who it is for. Is it a new handheld, a streaming device, or something in-between? With all the information finally available, we are here to clear up any confusion about what this latest piece of PlayStation hardware really is.
The PlayStation Portal will retail for $200 at launch.
Release date
You can expect the PlayStation Portal to arrive later this year, on November 15, 2023.

The most important thing to know about the PlayStation Portal is what it really is. This is not a dedicated handheld like the PSP or Vita that you can play games on natively, but instead can only be used as a companion to your PlayStation 5. This device is only intended to stream games from your main console to the screen via Wi-Fi for remote play. Games cannot be played locally on the device, meaning it cannot function without connecting to your PS5. However, you do not need to be on the same network as your PS5. As long as your PS5 is in rest mode and connected to Wi-Fi, you can connect to it through another Wi-Fi network to play, provided the connection is strong enough.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has new developer, fall 2024 release date
Slugg in The Chinese Room's version of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2.

Few games have as wild of a development journey as Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines 2.

A sequel to a cult-classic vampire RPG from the mid-2000s, Bloodlines 2 began its life as a 2016 pitch from developer Hardsuit Labs and Brian Mitsoda, writer of the original game, to IP owner and game publisher Paradox Interactive. Initially slated for release in early 2020, it was delayed multiple times before Paradox fired Mitsoda and took Hardsuit Labs off the project by mid-2021. Paradox chose not to cancel the game, though, instead finding a new studio to take it over the finish line.
