On behalf of Firaxis Games, thank you for sharing just how excited you are for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. We’ve been thrilled to see your reaction to everything from our announcement of the game to the reveal of our card-based tactical combat. Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a true dream project for the team and we can’t express what an honor it is to create something new in the Marvel Universe.
We decided to share that we’ve made the very tough decision to move our launch window to the second half of 2022. We know many fans were looking forward to playing the game originally next spring, and this decision did not come lightly. We decided to push our launch because we need more time to make this the best game possible. We believe in our creative vision for Marvel’s Midnight Suns and want to do justice in delivering an unforgettable adventure set in the supernatural side of Marvel. These extra months will be used to add more story, cinematics and overall polish and will be essential in helping us make our vision a reality.
Thank you for understanding – you are the best fans in the world.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns promises to show off the darker side of the Marvel Universe and will feature some new faces as well as recognizable characters like Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Blade, Nico Minoru, Magik, Ghost Rider, Doctor Strange, Captain America, and Wolverine. The tactical turn-based combat will be influenced by a card-based abilities system as players form a party of three Marvel Superheroes, in addition to an all new character.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is now due out in the latter half of 2022.
