Japanese development studio Cygames have announced that Granblue Fantasy: Relink has been delayed to further polish and optimize the title. The ambitious open-world JRPG will now release in 2023.
The development team has been hard at work getting Granblue Fantasy: Relink ready for its target release date in 2022. We understand the excitement players have for this game, so it is with utmost regret that we announce that the release date will be pushed back a second time to 2023.
Although internal and external circumstances pertaining to the novel coronavirus have been the primary hindrance to the development process, the entire staff has spared no effort in pushing to make up for lost time. However, considering the large-scale scope of this title, we believe more time is needed to further polish and optimize details and gameplay as we approach the final stretch.
All graphical resources, scenario pieces, voices, music, and other assets are in a completed state. At this stage, we are focused on refining gameplay balance, debugging, improving audio and graphical fidelity, and making general improvements to the overall experience. We would like to ask for a little more of your patience.
Further information was slated to be revealed in June 2022, but at the moment, our plan is to share more details in December 2022. We can’t wait to show you what we have!Yuito Kimura (Producer on Granblue Fantasy: Relink)
Granblue Fantasy: Relink is now scheduled to release in 2023 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. While the delay may be disappointing, Cygames have said that we will at least get more details on the game this December, so that’s something to look forward to.
